Michael,From the style of your painting, it is indeed a Scottish painter , Patrick Ryan dating (1908-2006). It is not the style of the artist with the assumed name Henri Plisson.When assessing an artist's work, appraisers must look at sales of works by the same artist. Art gallery sales prices are private.We must then go to auction sales prices which are public. When using comparable work by the same artist, medium, subject matter and size are factors to be considered.Appraisers most often use price per square inch of previously sold comparable works by the same artist as a measure of value.Using this method fro your pastel by Patrick Ryan, I was able to determine that your pastel has an auction value of $288.This means a retail art gallery would charge about $600-650 for your pastel.Selling art:The internet has your widest pool of buyers. To sell close to retail try the following -I suggest the you try artbrokerage.com sellinghttps://www.artbrokerage.com/help/selling-artPlus try ads on sites such ashttp://www.rubylane.com/arthttp://www.askart.com/Ads_Individual.aspxhttps://www.artnet.com/auctions/all-artworks/?utm_campaign=bannerad&utm_source=080514auctionsevergreen&utm_medium=linkhttp://www.artvalue.comSome like Etsy.com where you can set up your store for free and the selling fees are small or not existent.A private seller to a dealer can expect 30-60% of retail value.I hope I have helped you.If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING now so that I am compensated by JA for my time and effort.

Your answer was of great help as I wanted to know who the artist was and I now know name, nationality and d.o.b.By the way I have no wish to sell the painting as I enjoy it so much. It cost me £130
Thanks for your help
