On back of picture is a sticker that reads; Vilas-Mages Co. , Chicage.
2710 S.-1055.
Le Pontdu (or) Le Pantu.
This was in our family , does any one have any idea on the value of this picture?
Sincerely

Default captainm - watercolour by MARC

I have a watercolour by MARC. It is of a general cargo vessel at a Brooklyn, New York, pier. The ship is probably a 1950-60's style. The background buildings could date it. Any info??

Default ""Marc"" watercolour

I have had a Marc watercolour of what seems to be an english village, in my possession for 30 years. It reminded me of ''Ludlow'' in the UK.

Default google watercolor marc !!

This is really crazy -- I have had a lovely watercolor by "MARC" since the 60's, a family piece, and wondered for years who is this artist. My painting looks like an European village on a stream and tonight when I googled I found this site for the first time. I do not know if there is a label on the back because I had it professionally framed years ago. Soft colors, water reflection, love it !! Would love more information.

Post bought four Marc paintings, or are they?

I just bought four paintings at an estate sale, perhaps all of NYC, but they have a tiny copyright symbol in the bottom right corner that could easily have been hidden by a framer, but were not. I probably have prints, not originals. Did any of you see the ghost of a longer signature under the very strong MARC signature? One "painting" is of NYC skyline -- that should be very easy to date.

I'd be interested to know more as I have a watercolour 'MARC' (bottom right) being an early European street scene. Features a clock tower arched over the street adjoining 2 to 3 level buildings. Can you help? Richard rpadams@westnet.com.au

On back of 1 picture is written; Nordlingen Rosswette.
On back of 2nd picture is written; Lucern Spreuerbrucke.
These were in our family for a long time, does any one have any idea on the value of this picture?

Default Also curious

I have a watercolour with a strong MARC signature on the bottom left; it's a painting of the St Tropez dock area, has clock tower surrounded by buildings, small corner of water with one fishing type boat moored and four other fishing boats beached. I inherited this from my mom and estimate it be around 60 to 80 years old. It appears to be in its original frame and someone has written 'Stirling House, Saint-Tropez France' on the back in pencil, I think, but unfortunately the label for it's original framing has largely been peeled off - I can just make out 'A.G. Cook .... fram... fine art'. If anyone knows anything about this painting I would love to know. Thanks

Smile Marc

I have 2 with Marc in the bottom left hand corner of the old Shambles in Manchester, I don't think its a print but not sure, they look really old, I have looked on the ebay site but with no luck.
Does anyone know if they are worth anything?
