Hello, and thank you for taking your time. I found your site via a Google search, and you seem to be an expert.  I did make a donation a few weeks ago, when you were on vacation.  I found this print at a resale shop and loved it.  I do collect art, nothing big or anything, just things I find at resale shops.  I usually can find the artist, but this one has stumped.  It is hand signed in pencil and is hand numbered (217/240?).  Any information that you might give me would be very appreciated.

Sincerely,


C.C. McGrain

Hello there...and thank you for the donation, that was a nice surprise :-)

This is a limited edition print by R. Hovet.  I was not able to find much about this artist, but I will give you what I did find...

From the limited information, I don't think your print is of great monetary value, but certainly, it is a lovely piece...I always say to collect what speaks to you, and enjoy!

Sincerely,
