ART HIST:I have a painting that could be an airbrush from Thayer and Chandler, 1884. Does it have any historical value? Answered

8 X 10. Woman in profile dressed in hat and dress of late 1800's. No signature. I'm thinking it may be an example of early air brushing. There is no signature. Could it have any artistic value?


Anything "could" have artistic/historical value. If you want a reliable answer, you need to get someone knowedgable to look at it, determine exactly what it is, and tell you what the market is for that artist and medium. This is one of the areas where free advice over the Internet is probably worth just about what you paid for it.
