Francis Silva, oil on canvas, Sold for $275,000!

This painting was submitted years ago on my website.  The painting was left in a crate in the basement of a Rhode Island home.  It has a twelve inch tear and the son decided to see if it still had value.  Thank God he contacted me.  The painting was a fabulous luminous painting and although damaged the tear was mainly in a region that could be restored without much intrusion.  I worked with the client through the entire appraisal, restoration and private sale process.  At the end of the day the painting sold for $275,000!  It's amazing what still might be lurking in those attics and basements.  Don't hesitate to contact me even if the painting is damaged.  It is well worth finding out!  Contact me at
