Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the framing.

How wonderful to have found this in the back of an armoire!

This is a painting by wildlife artist Donald Grant (1930-2001, UK).

This piece has a value of £3,000 as a high estimate. Some of his

later work of African Safaris are more collectible,

but I think this is still a good price for a found piece.

The auction houses that have sold his work most recently have been Christie's of King Street and of South Kensington, Sotheby's London, and Bonham's in Knightsbridge, so I would suggest trying them first as a sale venue. Don't be surprised if they have a nose-in-the-air, it is just the attitude of these places. If they say no to this piece, there are others.

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them. Good luck!
