Question
wedding in venice (1924)by H. Magonigle
wedding in venice (192  
Could you suggest a dealer who might be interested in buying our painting (attached photo) by H.V.B. Magonigle?
Alternatively, could you tell me if Mr. (or Mrs.) Magonigle's artwork has significant value in today's market?
(We also own a small oil by Mrs. Magonigle)
Many thanks.
John Horst

Answer
Dear John, Not much for price records on either artist. H. Van Buren Magonigle (1867-1935), a couple of records $500 to $1,900. Edith Marion Magonigle (1877- ?) one price $800.
Nice frame on your painting, probably worth as much as the painting.
I don't know where to sell your painting other than auction, and lower end items are not doing well.
regards,
Dan
