Question
Dear Mr Evans,

I'm currently in posession of some original work from Jofhra. I have several small pecil drawings which probaply aren't worth much but i also have a rather large black chalk work.
I've done some research on it myself and actually found it in his index of recognized works.
http://www.johfra.net/m_info.php?lang=EN&sub=02

It's indexnumber 0573 "Figuur met sluier" which translates into "Figure with vail"
The proportions of 99x28 match exactly.
I'm not looking for an accurate appraisal or anything but a general idea of it's worth would be nice for insurance purposes.
Thank you in advance!

Answer
Hello Michael,

Unfortunately, I am not particularly familiar with this artist's work.  However, I did search through a few art databases, and his original chalk works appear to go for around $400 - $500 at auction.

I hope that this information can be of some assistance.

Warm Regards,

Andrew Evans
