'Diep' - Walter Sickert - original watercolour - speculative from Tempus Suisse

I am selling this beautiful water colour painting as speculative Walter Sickert. The signature is correct, the quality of work is correct and the subject is correct - the painting is of Diep, France, where Sickert moved to in the late 1880s. I have shown it to three knowledgeable individuals: two from London auction houses and one from a respected London art dealership. Two thought that the painting was 'right', while the other was unsure. As you can see, authenticating serious art is difficult and often about opinions. To sell the painting through an auction house or respected gallery, it must be officially authenticated by a world-renowned Sickert expert, of which there are two. The problem is that this is a costly and time consuming process. I have therefore decided to sell at a low nominal price. If the work turns out to be 'in the manner of' you still have a very fine painting, worth in itself what I am asking - people commission 'in the manner of' paintings for up to tens of thousands of pounds. If however, you manage to get the painting officially authenticated, you will own a very valuable asset. The painting comes complete with an antique frame. Read More http://www.tempussuisse.com/
