AUCTION RECORDS FOR THIS ARTIST ARE IN THE $200 TO $500 RANGE FOR WATERCOLORS OF SIMILAR SIZE. THE ONLY RECORDS I LOCATED WERE ALMOST TWENTY YEARS OLD! I WOULD TFORE LIKE TO SUGGEST THAT THE WHOLESALE VALUE OF THIS MASTERPIECE TODAY IS EASILY IN THE SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLAR RANGE.

ALTHOUGH I AM A NEW EBAYER, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU CAN BID WITH CONFIDENCE! I KNOW ART AND I SET UP THIS ACCOUNT TO SELL MANY OLD EUROPEAN DRAWINGS, PRINTS GOING AS FAR BACK AS THE FIFTEENTH CENTURY, OLD EROTICA, AND OCCULT BOOKS AND RELATED EPHEMERA. MY COLLECTION IS WORTH MILLIONS AND NUMBERS INTO THE THOUSANDS OF ITEMS--PLEASE BOOKMARK ME AND CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY. OVER THE NEXT MANY MONTHS, I WILL BE OFFERING EVERYTHING IN MY COLLECTION--NO MATTER IF IT IS WORTH A HUNDRED OR A HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS--AT A STARTING BID OF ONLY $9.99!!!!!

THE PHOTOS WILL GIVE PROSPECTIVE BIDDERS A GOOD IDEA OF THE QUALITY OF THIS PRICELESS MASTERPIECE.
