Question
I purchased a picture from an Estate sale which has a sticker on the back of it that has
CATALDA FINE ARTS,INC.
Title:Pumpkin C
Artist: Grandma Moses
Frame order R152
Order No. 5064

Answer
Hello LaDean,

Catalda Fine Arts produced reproductions of famous paintings or paintings by famous artists during the mid-twentieth century. The Grandma Moses work that you have by Catalda is likely a reproduction with only decorative value.  Grandma Moses was a famous American folk artist.  Her works were often used to promote American holidays, and she became somewhat of an American cultural icon, achieving fame at a later age (hence the name "Grandma Moses").

I hope that this information can be of some assistance.

Warm Regards,

Andrew Evans
