Fine Art/oil painting inquiry


I would like to find out the value of an oil painting.  The artist is Fritz Moritz Norilly born in Duesseldorf 1922.  I purchased the painting of a fux hunt from Rudolf Lesch Fine Arts, inc. in 1966 for $210.00  I have been unable to find any information on this painting or the artist, and am hoping you can help.  Thank you.

Dear Vanessa,

Your artist is known by the name Fritz Moritz (1922-1994) from Duesseldorf. I found several of his paintings at auction over the years and the auction range is $500-1000. A fox hunt painting sold at auction last year in Germany for $600. Please note that this is a range over several years and your painting may be of more or less value.

To research the artist further, use the shortened name Fritz Moritz. I hope this information is helpful.

Best regards,

Fine Art
