Fine Art/Arthur Hickman oil painting

Question
ON 1/19/2005 YOU ANSWERED A QUESTION CONCERNING AN OIL PAINTING BY ARTHUR HICKMAN.  I TOO HAVE INHERITED AN OIL PAINTING BY ARTHUR HICKMAN DATED AND SIGNED 1938.  IT IS OF RUNNERS THROUGH THE HILLS.  WE BELIEVE THE ARTIST COULD HAVE BEEN FROM ENGLAND, SINCE THE NEIGHBOR WHO GAVE US THE PAINTING WAS FROM ENGLAND AND WAS A BUYER FROM A LARGE DEPARTMENT STORE DURING THE 1950'S AND 1960'S.

Answer
Anne--I don't recall that answer from 2005, but I checked all my sources and Arthur Hickman doesn't appear, nor is any of his art listed as having sold at any auctions in the world the past few years, so I can't help you, 'though you never specifically asked a question.  Sorry.  Alan.

Expertise

I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.

Experience

I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
