QUESTION: Thank you so much Dan, i'm sending the back of the still life "Apples", it is stamped " Made in Spain". I hope this helps.

Answer
As I spend most of my time with Salvador Dali works, the image you provided is not familiar to me. The list of Spanish Still Life Artists is endless, so more research needs to be done. You can study works by Francisco de Palacios all the way to modern day Spanish Still Life Artists and see many similar to the one you have. We just need to narrow it down.

Expertise

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.
