Fine Art/Price on painting


Dan; I have an oil painting on canvas by peter ellenshaw.I dont
know the name of the painting,but it is on the order of one of
his paintings entitled "SCARIFF ISLAND".It has his signature on it
in the lower left hand corner,and is dated 1959.
It measures 30x36.Although I am not familiar with sending images
via the inter-net,I could send you a quality photo for you to
identify the painting.Any help that you can extend would be greatly appreciated.

I am familiar with various works by this artist, but it is outside my area. I am a Dali expert.
As prints from Ellenshaw seem to sell in the $500.00 to 2K range, some even more, I would imagine an original one of a kind will bring a good result at auction? I suggest finding a dealer that sells his works and ask if they want to broker it, or at least give you an idea as to value.

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.
