Re: Confirming authenticity of older painting

Thanks for posting those...I was definitely curious. They look great! Particularly like the bottom one. Any idea if they've been properly cleaned in recent years?

Re: Confirming authenticity of older painting

Stopped by the Denver Art Museum this weekend. I know they have more in their collection, but here are a few pictures of what I saw. http://s32.postimg.org/kfmzedvol/EMartin_Hennings1.jpg http://s32.postimg.org/3ysh0p1gl/EMartin_Hennings2.jpg http://s32.postimg.org/k809kmilh/EMartin_Hennings3.jpg

Re: Confirming authenticity of older painting

Oh wow. No lightweight there. I've definitely seen his work at the Denver Art Museum. I know you're in Chicago, but there are definitely any number of dealers out this way who would be very familiar with his work. Maybe you could send someone detailed pictures? Check out the site for the Denver Art ...

Re: Confirming authenticity of older painting

Well, if they're consistent with his other work, at least you have the provenance part taken care of. Mind sharing his name? Maybe there are some dealers or collectors familiar with his work who could point you in the right direction (places like AskArt basically have an ISO feature too).

Same thing with Frank Gonzales. I'm sure it's just the tip of the iceberg.

I've seen paintings go for over 40k on there. Usually not any great deals to be had and people often overpay compared to other sales venues. Weird marketplace.

Re: Breeze Block Gallery 2013/14

Story time! I wasn't going to say much more until the issue was resolved with the artist (Mike Egan), but it's squared away now, so I guess we're good. Four paintings that just sorta disappeared when Breeze Block closed shop were recently donated to a Goodwill in Oregon. I'm not absolutely sure who...

Re: Breeze Block Gallery 2013/14

Any artists get screwed over by Breeze Block? Shoot me a message...I have some info that could potentially be useful.

Amazing there wasn't more public outrage over non-returned works.

Re: The Ebay Advice Column

Thanks. I have someone who opened an eBay today sending offers for something listed for over $1k. Obviously someone playing games of some kind. You never know though...I've sold a few prints (MBW in particular) in the past for over $1000 to first time ebay buyers with weird auto-generated usernames...

Hmmm...I don't think you can actually block someone based on that (although you can block someone with a feedback score of -1 or lower). Go to "site preferences" and then "buyer requirements" to tweak what you do have control over.

Re: Help needed identifying artist

Awesome. Odd the other pieces seemed to have a different signature ... Or maybe there are multiple Demagny's .. thank you! True, but it's not all that uncommon for an artist's sig to evolve over time. Or maybe he signed prints differently than paintings? Who knows? Either way, I bet your $30 thrift...

Re: Help needed identifying artist

It's "R. Demagny." Check out the signature on this piece. Nice little thrift find.

Re: Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

Appreciate all the tips. I am going with a pod type scenario for sure now. Barring theft, fire or a rollover, I think I should be good. Baker - did the same thing with foam wrap and bubble...and some more bubble. Also wrapped a cardboard shell around some things before more bubble went around that a...

Re: Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

Yup, you got it, Guryter! The wife got a job near Denver and has already started, so I've gotta wrap up work here, sell half of what I own including a house and attempt to get the animals out west alive.

I'll either sell all my posters before I move again...or just plan to die in Colorado.

Re: Transporting a collection - 2000 mile move

What about renting a trailer? This isn't a bad idea - my little car could technically pull it. Whether or not I'd need a new transmission after is another story. And then I guess I'd be limited in how fast I could safely drive. Yeah, seems like some of the pod services like U-Haul's U-Box have mixe...
