Question
Beauty of Cloro
Beauty of Cloro  
I have what I think is the original oil painting by Tim Ashkar. The name of the painting is "Beauty of Color", which is currently in print. It's framed and is about 28x24.  Itís signed and dated (í92) in the lower right hand corner.  I'm hoping you can give me some idea of the value, if any.

Answer
Vivian,
Tim Ashkar, a contemporary artist, has an online website at http://www.ashkarstudios.com/   Take a look at what he has for sale, compare it to what you have.  Composition, perspective, depth, color, subject matter, size...all components to measure.  You should get a pretty good idea of where prices start.

Of course, it is hard to establish what the market is, or even find that market.  I see no record of Tim Ashkar works in public auction.  He may or may not have dealers who represent him.  You could call him, of course.  I do not follow contemporary artists for this reason -- it is difficult to zero in on value.

I see that that print is very popular and appears on various websites as a print for sale.

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
