We consider this the single best (inexpensive) guide to the art market and an invaluable aid to the "amateur" for quickly identifying potentially valuable works of art. The guide is best used for its breadth and not depth of coverage–it can help to quickly identify a seemingly obscure artist, but other sources are essential for determining the actual value and current market conditions for individual works of art.

This is our personal buying guide for prints offered at auctions and shows. Beginning this year we are making our compilation of print prices available to the public for those who would like to gain this "bidders advantage." Actual selling prices of over 3,200 prints sold primarily in the past two years are listed. The emphasis is on our personal favorites–Currier & Ives, Maxfield Parrish, and Wallace Nutting–but sample prices are also included for R. Atkinson Fox, Bessie Pease Gutmann, Fred Thompson, and others. This price guide has been an indespensible aid for identifying "underpriced" and avoiding "overpriced" prints offered for sale both online and at live auctions and shows. Some illustrations are also included to help identify untitled Maxfield Parrish prints.

Gutmann book

Excerpted from the book cover . . .

This visual masterpiece contains more full-color photography of Gutmann's work than all other previous Gutmann publications, [sic] and is accompanied by the most complete pricing to her work ever offered. Some of the works shown are so rare that this book provides their only publication outside of hard-to-find antique art print catalogs.

Whether familiar with Gutmann's work or not, the magnificent imagery in this book will make it a wonderful addition to anyone's art library. Because of Gutmann's predominant subject matter, those who love children will truly appreciate her ability to capture their spirit, and those caught up in the current popularity of angels and the ethereal will not be disappointed with Gutmann's representations of them in this wonderful collection of images.
