Hello. I recently found a photograph I am curious about. It is titled "coastlands" and signed George Seideneck 1941. I don't know anything about art or photography. Can you give me any info about it? Is it something I should have preserved professionally? Does it have any value? Thank you very much for your help.

Answer
BJ, you should have it preserved professionally. George Seideneck was a well-known California photographer during the 20th Century and he worked and lived in the Carmel, Ca. area. Your scene is probably from that area. Worth is $500-$800 fair market value. If you check with one of the California photo dealers they may give you more depending on how rare and desirable the scene is.
