Fine Art/oil painting


I purchased a oil painting on canvas signed by Holler.  It is a snow setting with old shaped barns. A lady walking down road to a door I believe.  How can I find out is this was painted by the artist, C. Holler?  Please advise.  thank you

Hi Grace,

You have a couple options. You can find a fine art appraiser or you can take it to an auction house. This list of fine art appraisers shows where each appraiser is and their expertise.

As far as auction houses, which are not as fun to deal with, I recommend or Sothebys .

Best of luck to you, Grace!
