Fine Art/antique thermes


I purchased a Catalda Fine arts framed picture. I don't want to resell it, but would love to know more about the painting and the artist. I'm having a hard time finding anything. The back says the title is Antique Thermes by Roberts. Would love to know more. Thanks for your time.

Hello Esther,

While I am not familiar with this artist, I can tell you that Catalda Fine Arts produced reproductions of famous paintings or paintings by famous artists during the mid-twentieth century. Unfortunately, the work that you have by Catalda is likely a reproduction with only decorative value (no real collectible value). Catalda Fine Arts has a somewhat marred reputation, as they were involved in litigation for many years regarding copyright violations to the images that they produced. The values can vary on these Catalda works based on factors such as the desirability of the image, the artist, size, condition, and framing. I found the below ebay link that sounds similar to what you own. Perhaps it can be of some assistance:
