Hello,

My name is Alan and I have been asked to assist you!

I am a Certified & Licensed Insurance Adjuster, Accredited AOA Appraiser, and an IRS Qualified Appraiser. It will be my pleasure to put my expertise, libraries & resources, and experience in the field to work for you.

I appreciate your patience while I conducted my research and prepared this answer for you. I saw that you needed a value and assumed it was Market Value; the most up-to-date price range to expect if sold today. This is estimated using the prices that buyers have recently paid and sellers have accepted in the open and competitive market.

Searching auction house records and library databases provided recent sales results of qualified market comparable items. Using these I was able to determine the average market value minimum and maximum for you.

These recent completed sales gave your Giovanni Bonatti oil painting a current market value of $5.17 - $10.58 per square inch. I can provide exact numbers with measurements.
As always, the price you are able to sell for may vary depending on venue, condition, market variances, and more.

I would recommend a starting asking price of $12 per square inch if selling so that you can reduce if necessary since Market Value represents what someone was willing to pay for an asset, not the amount it was offered for. Please let me know if you would like Insurance value as well.

Please let me know if this is the information you were looking for and reply with any questions now or any time in the future. If you are satisfied, please let me know by rating my answer for my compensation and to close out the question. Thank you kindly.

I try to always provide Excellent Service, so if you have any other items, just say Hello Alan at the beginning of your new question. Thank you again!

Sincerely,

Appraiser Alan
