First, let me say that you should not try to sell your painting via auction. The highest auction price paid for a ***** ***** painting is $335. See the following image for the statistics as of 2016.
To view information about this artist as well as what a gallery is asking for his paintings, see these sites where you will see prices GBP 5,000 and GBP 10,000.
***** ***** (born 1969) -
Your example appears to be one of his "study" paintings. As such, it would have an estimated retail value of GBP4000-5000 assuming good condition and depending on sale geographic location.
In general, a private seller to a dealer or via consignment can expect 30-60% of estimated retail value.
Insurance replacement values are usually about 10% more than retail values.
If you wish to sell, these are my suggestions -
The internet has your widest pool of buyers. To sell close to estimated retail try the following -
Try ads on sites such as
Some like Etsy.com where you can set up your store for free and the selling fees are small - 20 cents to list an item plus 3.5% of the final price.
Or list with no fees whatsoever:
