Fine Art/French oil paintings


QUESTION: Sir, I recently purchased two oil paintings by an artist name G. Delotoryche or Delatoryche dated 1924 and 1926.  I believe the artist to be french but have been unable to pull any information on him/her.  I appreciate any help you can offer.

ANSWER: I can usually find something about an artist, nothing is coming up?  I have art industry book and lists of publsihers and their artists, but still nothing?


---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: Dan, thanks for the time.  I will be back in contact with you as soon as I get access to the paintings again.  There are serialized on the back as if they we part of a collection at one time.  We I received them I will send the serial numbers to see if they help at all.  Thanks again, Mike

Item numbers are usually from a gallery or dealer and probably won't provide help.  Many artists works are listed in reference books without item numbers. I have seen some works like Picasso graphics that are listed with a series of numbers, not sure that will help us?

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
