A painting of lambs and trees with the date 1939 on painting next to name.I have more and will request info at later date  thanks,  mike

Answer
Mike--My area of expertise is 20th century masters, so this is out of my area.  However, having heard of Patterson, I looked him up in the American Artists Bluebook [www.askart.com].  One gallery is shown to carry his work, and they should be able to give you value:  Vallejo Gallery in Newport Beach, CA [vallejogallery@earthlink.net].  I didn't find anything on Gehrmand.  Regarding other pieces you have, try googling them before contacting me, unless they are Masters [eg:  Picasso, Chagall, Miro, Matisse, etc.]  Good luck.  Alan Klevit.

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.
