Summary

Summary

This value guide focuses on seven of the most popular and commercially successful artists and photographers of their time, covering the art prints of Maxfield Parrish, Bessie Pease Gutmann, and R. Atkinson Fox, and the hand-colored photographs of Wallace Nutting, David Davidson, Fred Thompson, and Sawyer pictures, and nearly 100 additional commonly found prints. Between 1900-1940 these seven household names sold more than 20,000,000 of their prints across America and overseas. They were so popular that hardly an American middle class home was without at least one of their prints. Today these prints are more popular than ever and are hunted by an army of collectors. Written by a full-time dealer and print collector, this essential guide is designed to provide both collectors and dealers with the basic information they need to profitably buy and sell these works. It includes current prices, nearly 500 photos for easy visual identification and pricing, complete and concise background information on each artist and photographer, condition requirements, what's hot, where to buy and sell and reproduction alerts, as well as hundreds of collecting tips. 2004 values.
