Question
"I have piece which about an 12" X 24", it has the registration numbers written on the back it it intiled on the back and it is signed by S. Sideris. This piece came into our family in 1986 as a wedding gift to my sister from her employer at a prestigeous gallery in Miami, Fl. at that time I recall that it was already old and she mentioned it was a very nice gift from their part. She gave me the painting as I always loved it when she got divorced and I have always kept it hanging. I would like to know more about this artist and the possibilities of knowing a ball park figure as far as value.

Thak you"
