Question
Everette woodson painting
Everette woodson paint  
Hi Stuart:  I bought this painting in 1996 at a liquidation dealer. The other day a friend noticed the signature and said that Everett Woodson is a well know American artist. From the attached photo can you determine if this is genuine and if so, its monetary value. Dimensions 24"x36",medium is oil, on white canvas, nothing on back of canvas. Back of frame is stamped "Category 2" and on opposite side "Living Art INC P.O. Box 385 Kleinburg Ontario"..........Thank you, Richard
P.S. It does not appear I can attach both photos so i will attach the signature image to a follow up message.

Answer
I answered another inquiry about Woodson yesterday.  Hmmm.  Strange.  Anyway, I'll tell you what I dug up for them:

The good news is you have a listed American artist.  The bad news is that his paintings are not highly sought after.  Four times in the last 2 years Woodson paintings have come to auction, and twice they have sold for $50, well below the estimates of $200-$300.  Twice they went unsold.  

At any rate, enjoy your original American artwork.  I enjoy looking at original art every day.

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.
