Description and history
This is an original oil painting of Jimmi Hendrix. The quality of the painting is high, however there is no information about the artist’s name. There is nothing written on the back of this painting that give us any kind of clue about the artist’s name. I have run our image recognition software, to see if there is any match. Here are the results:
There isn’t any match using this search tool, so the image is original. If the painting is a reproduction, we should see a match here, however it seems it is a mix of two known pictures of Jimmi Hendrix:
At this point, we need to check the signature and see if there is a match of this signature. Following the artist’s database (Askart) there is no artist that could match-signatures Ango, Anga, Augo, Ando, Anda, Audo were tried.
With all this information, our best guess is this is a original painting by either a local or street artist that it’s unknown to the art community. Value of such piece is found upon quality and number of collectors willing to acquire Jimmi Hendrix Memorabilia. It is also possible that you will find a buyer interested in this piece as a purely decorative 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.
