I have a newly acquired plethora of Antiques, Art, Collectables

by mephistopheles (04/11/08).

I am 51 years old and have been a musician/bandleader all my life as was my father and although he died hen I was 15, it was music or baseball, and he wasn’t there to kick my ass any longer so I picked the easy road. Can’t say it hasn’t given me alot, but it’s taken quite a bit from me too – as well as from some people I love…anyway,I hope I’m in the right place – I have some art – oil paintings, many antiques of all kinds from my grandparents estates,and sad to say, I have to be selling quite a bit of the things.
This is unlike any website I’ve been to and maybe I’m way off base being here, but I have a few pics(and much more to take, yet) and if someone has thye time to contact me and at least tell me if I’m in the right ballpark, that’d be great. My sincere Thanks, Marc

    I recently purchased a copy of a piece of artwork The artist name is Raphael Sonzio (1483-1520) the original drawing was done in red chalk measuring 20.3 x 26 cm Its called “The Three Graces” by Rapheal. On the back of the frame it says “This drawing is a study for the group in the fresco ‘The Marriage of Cupid and Psyche’, in the Farnesina. Dated at 1516-1517, this work was first recorded in the collection of George III. FI/11/73. On this print that I have you can see a drawing of an anchor. The only thing I know about this one is that the previous owner purchased this in England who then brought it to the US many years ago. I know this is a copy of the original But still looks to be very old. The framing looks like to have been done professionally. The back of the frame has been sealed to help protect from turning yellow with age. Any information about the value of this copy or more information about how many copies were made or age would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to see pictures please email me at farmersgwen@yahoo.com.
