Question
SUNLIT PATTERNS
SUNLIT PATTERNS  
I HAVE WHAT IS DESCRIBED BY AAA AS A IL GELETONE.  WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? THE PICTURE IS "SUNLIT PATTERNS"

Answer
Toby,
You have a print. In the late nineteen thirties, improvements in printing processes permitted the mass distribution of art to a public thirsty for larger, more colorful images.  Life Magazine became very popular for its highly visual color images...cross this with an emerging post-War "middlebrow" culture, and a market was born for reproduction art.  

Here's an interesting tidbit:

Quick perusal via Internet finds Lucioni prints priced in the $50-$150 range.

Hope that helps, Toby.  Enjoy your picture!

Expertise

American Fine Art Paintings.
Oils, Watercolors, Sketches. Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century. Hudson River School, Pennsylvania Academy, Cape Ann artists, Ash Can, Woodstock, Florida Indian River, American Impressionists, etc. I can provide some background about artists and perhaps a rough appraisal or guidance towards obtaining a value. I am acquainted with many of the best American art dealers and auction houses. Original works only, I do not follow the print market. I do NOT field questions about prints.

Important to know
I am not expert in European art. I encourage you to send questions on European artists to other experts on this service. NO PRINTS:I encourage you to seek help on prints elsewhere. Two sites come to mind: www.artoftheprint.com and www.philaprintshop.com

Experience

I have been collecting original American Fine Art for over 20 years. I have curated art shows, and I have served as a dealer, providing appraisals and guidance for the last 8 years.
