Fine Art/Question about oil painting
I recently purchased an oil painting at a yard sale. It is signed Marin, and I am wondering if it is a John Marin oil painting. I am attaching an image. It is on a cloth canvas. I would appreciate any insight you may have. I would also like to know an estimate of it's worth if that is possible. Thank you, Linda
Linda, Not a chance !
What you have is furniture store art, in other words a factory painting. There are over 700 "art factories" in Hong Kong alone, not to mention the rest of Asia, Eastern Europe, and Mexico. A canvas is moved down a table or conveyor belt, one person paints trees, another paints mountains, another water, etc. A name for the artist is taken out of a book or just made-up. This will be fine for your next yard sale.
