Thank you so much for this info Boomerang. I've had the paintings for about 20 years. I have followed Reynolds art notices, but wasn't really sure on what the current prices were. The Artnet has a paid service for artist prices.
The gallery projected a selling prices of $6-7,000 with a 40% commission. So that sounds on spot.
Of course, I can go the eBay route.
Reynolds is just beginning to go up in the market. Largely because the early western artists are pretty much bought up. Reynolds was considered a third tier painter.
Didn't he spend time in Conn.?
I think we should all pack up and go paint in Paris.
Maybe Francis will put us up
