Thanks for your patience! Based on the image it may be by an artist artist Jean Gunther. I found a close work to yours, where the seller wrote: "We love the texture and beautiful colors! In overall good condition, with a bit of edge wear to the frame, as expected. Signed lower right JG. Jean is sister to John Gunther, journalist and author (Death Be Not Proud, among other works). Little is known about her background and training. Her works are numerous and include Oils (canvas and board), Watercolors, Gouaches, Collage, Sketches, and even hand made calendars," and she painted in an abstract expressionist style popular in the mid 20th century. The attached work sold for $125 but at an antique or midcentury consignment shop these sell for $200 to $300.
Again, thank you! Is there any additional information that I can provide? Rating my professionalism using the 5-star system is the only way that JustAnswer recognizes experts and it closes the question. It does not cost you anything additional. (see: http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-rate-answer-hl) Also, I don't participate in calls that cost additional money for you: these requests come from JustAnswer and not the expert. If you have any more questions, let me know!
Thank you for reviewing your answer, but I noticed that you did not rate it. Is there any additional information I can provide?
