Description and history
This is an original painting, beautifully framed, circa late 20th century and signed Collini. The signature is clearly visible on the bottom corner, so in this case it is better to start with the artist surname. There are two possible artist’s names that can match:
Egidio Collini (20th Century) Painting – Italy
Paolo Collini $$ (Born 1950) Painting – Italy
From the style of the painting, the author is Paolo Collini. He is a listed artist but not very famous, though his artwork has been sold in the US in seven past auction sales. Egidio Collini’s style is abstract-modern, so it doesn’t match the style of this painting. Paolo Collini is best known for landscapes and seascapes.
The style of the painting is Baroque, which was quite popular in the 19th century. A well known artist with a similar style is Robert Alexander Hillingford. The style was reproduced later on, however its popularity peaked in the late 19th century. The back of the painting and the frame construction is also modern (it is machined, and the metallic parts are modern). If the painting were made in the 19th century, we should see hand forged nails and a poor frame construction quality. For sure that this painting is circa mid-late 20th century.
Regarding the value, this piece is appreciated by art collectors and it is considered a art piece. The frame ads value and while the artist isn’t super famous, it is known by art collectors.
Our AI image recognition cannot find any other similar artwork, so it isn’t a reproduction or an enhanced print.

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.
