A Framed Painting by HOMCO circa 21st Century

I’ve inherited this from my grandparents. It’s been in the family for many many years

Description and history

This is an original painting circa 21st Century of a Country scene. As we can see from the pics, there is no signature, this painting is unsigned. On the back of this piece there isn’t any information and the provenance doesn’t include the artist’s name.

In this case, I started using our AI software to try to find if this piece is a reproduction or a known print, here are the results:

As we can see, there is no match to a known print, lithograph, or painting. 

At this point, we can conclude that this painting was either painted by an unknown street artist or made by HOMCO or Vanguard Studios. Both companies hired local unknown artists to mass-produce original paintings and sell them as a decorative piece. I can conclude this painting belongs to this category (it is unsigned, quality, and type of painting perfectly matches HOMCO paintings in particular).

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.
