Fine Art/old paintings


I acquired 4 items from my mother. Oil painting (farm woman portriat) a dated 1898 signed by G.G.Grafton or G.J. Grafton, an oil painting (farm house) by w.Buich best I can tell and an oil painting floral still life by G'itta., again best I can tell.  I cannot find any information on these artists.  I'm hoping you can tell me about them and what value these paintings may have. I can send pictures.


Greetings Krys,

Like you, I can find no information about these artists.  (Sadly, not every artist is 'recorded' in history ...)

As for values: I do not work in an auction or commecial gallery setting, and am not a licensed appraiser, so I not deal with questions of monetary value.

Best wishes, sincerely,
Jay Heuman
