Oil Painting -- CARON
« on: June 08, 2010, 05:07:21 AM »
Hi, I just picked this up for $1 this weekend.  Looks real to me, but like the canvas was put on a piece of board.  The painting is about 8 x 10 size, or maybe a bit larger (forgot to measure it).....whoooops.

Name on it:  RENE CARON

I am not sure about it, or where this person is from (or even male/female).  Can anyone help me find any info on this person -- and IF this is real, and real signature?

Thanks.....I keep looking for a Picasso... :24: :x-fingers:

http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/french-rene-caron-paris-street-scene-88252904 - seems like a genuine French artist Rose. :)

Super -- one mans trash is another person TREASURE....for a $1 - I am out nothing.....but maybe a bit of $$$

Any members here are able to log into Worthpoint to see what the price that one was sold at?

I am not a member there, so would be just nice to know.  Worthpoint is good -- you find a similar item there, but then you do not know the value of it...

:(

Wish I'd kept up painting,been years since I picked up a brush,did this back in the 80's,have done a few watercolours but just copies of Japanese woodblock prints,

Keith -- nice Tiger painting....TC would LOVE IT.

As for the other art work with Abbot.....it looks like you tried the magnifying glass over the signature with the camera technique that I had mentioned. 

See, it does help...  :sign_gj:
