Question
I would like any info you have on the 1950s artist "Carlo of Hollywood" . Thank
you.

Answer
Eliza,
You have what I would term a "collectible", not "fine art".  Not to say what you have isn't lovely or valuable, but simply you are perhaps looking for information in the wrong places.  As you surf the 'net, try looking for information about Carlo of Hollywood in "Collectible" forums.

Evidently, Carlo Carando (or Carmado) did a large quantity of genre or figure work in the 1950s. He may have been a set designer in the early days of television.  Many online forums are full of folks who have found works signed by "Carlo" in garage sales.  

Hope that is of some help. Enjoy your art!  Hang it where you can see it everyday!  

Regards,

Stu

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.
