Question
Robertson
Robertson  
I recently found a painting at a garage sale that is signed C.Robertson, the painting has the date 1843 on the bridge in the painting and also has the phrase "Wee Barge Inn" written on what appears to be a boat in the canal.Any info you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Answer
Dear Edward,

I'm actually a Renaissance art historian rather than an art appraiser. Nevertheless, I would advise you to take your painting to a reputable auction house where they will likely appraise it for free.

Best wishes and a happy New Year,

Samantha
