Fine Art/Belgian artist Florimond Marie Van Acker


I have two 7x9 framed watercolor etchings signed in pencil by Van Acker. My parents got them as a gift back in the 1930s from a friend who purchased them in New York. On the back of the framing is a label which reads Publication of Edward Gross Co.,Inc. New York  Original Etching  Limited Edition  by Van Acker. Also on the back there is the number 4000 written in pencil. Both etchings depict scenes of waterways along Belgian streets in the 1800s. They are beautifully framed and in excellent condition. I don't plan to sell them but I'm curious if they have any value. Also, any information you can provide on Van Acker would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I can help you, but it will take some time to put all the info together.

Some info I have off the top of my head, other info I can get to but it takes some doing.

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.
