Question
We have a landscape in oils by the above artist who I believe to be Australian, The signature looks the same as other paintings of his on the internet. How do I get the painting authenticated and valued

Answer
Andrew,
Indeed he is Australian. Signs his works in a blocky print WD KNOX.  Check with Sotheby's in London...Sothebys in Sydney has  brought his works to auciton.  Prices are generally in the US$5,000 to US$8,000 range.  Ocassionly higher.  

Good artist, I like his tonalist type beach paintings.  

Good luck.

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.
