  • Painting Sampans at Sunset value of original

    I have what I do believe to be the original oil painting called "Sampans at Sunset" painted by Gorman Woody in 1965. It is a large oil painting 48" x 24" on canvas. I sent it to an online art apprasier (included pictures of painting both close up and distant and pictures of back of painting and the signature). The apprasier stated that in her opinion it looks to be the original and she doesn't think that it is a reproduction because of the detail and the fact that the artist is not very well known in the art comminity so there would not have been much interest in reproductions. She valued the painting at $1200.00. I though that this might be low since the artist is no longer alive (died in 2000). Does anyone know what the true value of this painting is? Also if any one is interested in purchasing this painting I would sell it if he offer was reasonable (would send pictures of art apprasiers comments along with pictures of painting both front and back and the signature) Thanks.

    Sampans at Sunset

    I too have a very large painting, an original in that it is painted by hand, that looks basically the same as simularly titled and signed paintings by Woody 65. I am guessing that Gorman Woody painted several very similar pieces and gave them all the same title. Of course there could be other, less desireable explanations.... I have seen about the same value given to other originals of the sampans at sunset painting. I would love to know more about this myself as there is definatly some confusion out there even among dealers.

      Sampans at Sunset

      We have a large print (don't believe it is a painting) 53 X 29 1/2 of Sampans at Sunset. On the lower right corner is says Woody 65. There is also a brass plate on the front with the name of the print Sampans at sunset. On the back there is a label stating Crest-Art Manufactures of fine wall D?cor. There is a number then the name of the print. I have attached some pictures. Any value to this? Click image for larger version

                There seem to be numerous identical versions of this painting out there, suggesting that it's a reproduction printed in such a way as to look like an original painting, or else it's being copied extremely meticulously. Probably the former. In any case it might be worth something, but I don't know if it would be worth paying an appraiser for an opinion on this.

                      How do you determine if the painting is the original or copy?
