CS Crose from Dan Holtendorp
CS Crose from Dan Holt  
QUESTION: I have two paintings by CS Crose. Plain frames. Islamic scenery. Any direction
you can point me in would help me alot. I keep coming up with dead ends. They
came from the basement of my now deceased dutch grandparents and curiosity
is drawing me in.

ANSWER: This is not listed in my published artists guides. I see no listing in my "Masters" data base?  This will take more research and probably lead you to a specific region in a country outside the USA. Just my guess.

QUESTION: Hi again Dan.    I don't suppose you could offer any intuitive guesses in the
direction I should start looking. I'm completely at a loss and would gladly follow
any speculative hints. Thanks, Vargas Dan.

I can't see the image very well, but with the biblical look?  In theses cases, you someimes have to find dealers that sell works in the same subject matter and see if they can give you a "best guess".

To see how vast the genre is, type   biblical art    into google.

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
