Entrance To The Village Of Voisins 1872--Pissarro
I wanted to tell you guys a story about these paintings. The painter is Pissarro he was a famous Caribbean born french painter 1830-1903. I didn't know all this when I bought these at an auction 1 1/2 years ago. I just liked the frames. My husband saw them he couldn't sleep until he found out more. We had them appraised local auctioneer who is on antique road show, he appraised them at $150.00 each not original. He said if they were it would retire him and myself for life. They would be worth over million each. WOW!! But we contacted art gallery in New York, they were willing to give us $650.00 each because they are early repo's. I bought them for $5.oo each with the antique frames. You never know what you might find. I decided I would keep them.
