I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

Thank you!

Hello. I’m Art & Antiques Expert Caravaggio with extensive experience in all kinds of antiques and art appraisals. I will be happy to assist you with your query.

I am referring to your question about a frame picture by contemporary artist Pascale Maguerez, who was born in 1959 in Neuilly, France.

It is a pastel depicting a female figure.

Pascale’s sensitivity of colour and the African body influenced her earlier period, we can also find this in German expressionism. Funny, sunny, full of life, and sensual.

The present work can be valued at around 300 to 400 GBP.

If selling is your plan, here are a few helpful suggestions:

Besides Facebook Marketplace, there are also other suitable online classifieds markets for the private sale of antique and vintage items such as Etsy.com, eBay.co.uk and JustCollecting.com.

I hope that I have provided you with the information you were seeking.

Thank you very much for your consultation request.
