Description and history

This is an original painting in abstract style depicting a city landscape scene. From the pics, we can immediately see it is an original painting (the roughness perfectly matches the colors on the screen). The painting is original, it isn’t a reproduction, the algorithm couldn’t find any similar scene: 

It is signed “P Gillon”, there are two known listed artists that could fit:

Paul Gillon

1926 – 2011 | France | Drawing, comics | 

Pierre Gillon

Paul Gillon is known for all kind of comic drawings, but he never painted landscapes. However Pierre Gillon is known for painting landscapes, and he used all kind of style (even the abstract style).

However, the quality of the painting is good, and the abstract style is quite popular nowadays, which increases the value of the painting.

How to sell it

Art pieces are difficult to sell, you will need some time to find a buyer, so be patient!

To sell the items, I would recommend doing so through the internet. You have plenty of options, for instance:

– Ebay, Craiglist, Etsy, Facebook ads, Amazon marktplace

I would probably go ahead and take a couple of good pictures, like described here:

Then I would use the provided description as a text to the ad, and an attractive ad title will make it.

There isn’t any special difference between selling it on Etsy, FB or Amazon. I would recommend to upload the same ad to at least two or three platforms. It will ensure a high visibility of the ad.

The asking price can be close to the value, it depends upon how fast you want to sell. In general, an agressive strategy of 20% price cut will work great, however it depends upon your specific location.

About the valuation method

To value this item I have considered the results from past auction sales. Keep in mind that the final price can be different from asking prices that you can find on the internet. You can see ads on the internet with different asking prices. However, a very high asking price doesn’t normally find cash from a buyer. 

That’s why our method comprises searching and comparing similar past sale results that had a buyer. That’s why we can provide an accurate estimation of this item.

For art pieces, remember that it isn’t the same a print, a limited edition print or an original art piece. If the artist can’t be identified, the value assigned corresponds to the quality and potential interest of the market for the painting.
