An Original Painting of Sacré-Coeur circa 1973

Unable to read the signature. The date of the painting apparently states’73.
On the back of the painting, it appears that the painting came from Carroll Condil Galleries, white plains, n.y.

This is a professional appraisal report provided upon request. It contains a detailed description and valuation of your artwork. This document also includes information about how to sell your artwork, and about the Valuation method we’ve used.

This report is designed to give you an appraisal value for the Art you own, whether it is a painting or other type of art. The information provided will help you to understand your piece and its value. It also provides an appraisal value in US dollars, as well as how to sell it. This report is not intended to encourage you to sell your art, rather it aims to provide information on your art’s value, so that you know what steps to take if you do wish to sell.

Description and history

To investigate this work of art, I used a specialized software to analyse if it is listed in a private database of millions of paintings. The software takes the picture as input, compares it with millions of other works in the database, and outputs whether it is an original scene or copy of a painting. This software will be useful later to determine the origin of the art piece. The results of the automatic recognition are not conclusive. If a match is found, it will be showed below.

In this case, we see the algorithm can’t find a match. This piece of artwork is an original scene (the scene isn’t a reproduction of a known painting). Now, let’s look at the picture of the signature:

The signature is really difficult to make out, so let’s try to find more clues. The scene is a Paris Street Scene, specifically, we can see on the background a landscape of Montmartre. Montmartre is a large hill in Paris’s 18th arrondissement. It is 130 m (430 ft) high and gives its name to the surrounding district, part of the Right Bank of Paris. We can see the Sacré-Coeur (The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica). I think the exact street is Rue Chevalier de la Barre Paris, as reported in some photographs of the registry. So this painting can be classified as a Paris Street Scene painting, quite commonly made by unknown street artist. They made this kind of painting to make cash, basically they are sold to tourists.

The date is 1973 and on the back of the painting we can read Carroll Condil Galleries. There are no reference of this Gallery, so most likely the bussines is closed. In this sticker you would normally see the artist name and title if the Gallery found it. In this case, there is no information, so most likely the artist is unknown. Sadly, I am unable to read the signature or a part of it, so I have to appraise as an unknown artist (that really makes sense this was painted by an street artist).

How to sell it

Antiques, art, and other collectibles are difficult items to sell online. This can take a lot of time. Be patient, but also make sure that the price you are asking for is the right one for your pieces of art. Consider the following tips on how to sell antiques and collectibles online. These tips will help maximize the price of your antique or collectible.

I would recommend selling it online, there are many ways to do this, for instance: Post an ad on Craigslist. Use eBay to sell antiques online. Post a listing on the Etsy marketplace. Sell with direct messages using Instagram. Create a website using Squarespace or WordPress. Use Shopify to sell via a website, POS and social channels. List your items on, Facebook Marketplaces or Amazon Marketplace. The higher number of ads the better, if you don’t have time, I would recommend to start with Facebook, Etsy and Amazon.

The key to selling antiques on-line is to let potential customers know that you know what you are talking about. It’s much more difficult to sell something when the potential buyer can’t be sure it is authentic. Sellers should use a well thought out descriptive guides, like this report. A good lead generation service should be helpful in establishing these relationships with online buyers, and an effective way to do this is through a classified ads. If a buyer asks for more information, giving them some valuable facts well ahead of time will get you more sales because your reputation increases and real customers are the ones who ask for more details.

In order to sell your Antiques online, you will need to create a profile on the relevant forum (Etsy, Amazon and FB). Make sure you add a high-resolution image of the product (include at least 3 detailed photos) and add some text. The text should be informative and straight to the point, nothing fancy or fluffy.

Asking price is a big factor to sell your antique. If your asking price is too high (fancy company stickers, missing parts, or chip paint) you are unlikely to get many bids. If the asking price is too low it will cost you money for repairs, shipping, and insurance. As a general rule, I would recommend setting an asking price that is 80% of the value of this report, so you will make the listing attractive from the beginning.

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.

Trying to determine likely interests and tastes of a broad market can be tricky. Works by a lesser-known artist may reveal greater interest to collectors than you might expect, but it is difficult to know without some market research. The same applies for artists who have works in the major museums or galleries but whose work doesn’t command large prices at auction or from dealers. Do not confuse print original limited edition. Be aware that the value of a piece of art is linked to the artist’s name and reputation. The quality of the work of art, its potential interest, are also major factors in its evaluation.

Quality art can be a good investment, but a large print or lithograph might not be as valuable. There are many different kinds of prints. An original piece of art has the highest value, followed by limited edition prints, which have a set number of prints produced.

  3. Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on your blog. What I would offer as advice to people would be to give up the actual mentality they can buy at this point and pay back later. Being a society we all tend to try this for many things. This includes vacation trips, furniture, along with items we want. However, you should separate your current wants from the needs. If you are working to raise your credit score you really have to make some sacrifices. For example you possibly can shop online to save cash or you can click on second hand stores instead of high priced department stores to get clothing.
