Two on the bridge?
Two on the bridge?  
Dear Sir,

I've got an oil paintings 42'x30' size signed by Mauro. There is no other name or date was located. I have a digital image of it and curious who is this person was what school belongs to, when approximately was done and if it has any value.
Thank you!

Answer
Serg,
This is decorative art, not fine art.  Probably produced to complement furniture.  There are a few listed artists named "Mauro" but they have first names and have nothing to do with your piece.

It is worth is anything your local estate auction house tells you.  Probably $40 - $100.

No reason you can't enjoy it in your own home, though!

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.
