IN/OUT TREASURE HUNT
Dear Donna, I have several of these pastels that my aunt had done many years ago. They are 14” x 17” and I was told they were created during the 1940s. Can you tell me if there would be any value to them? All of them are floral such as this one. Carrie from Methuen, Mass.
ject. Just as modern art today, the subject is the desirability. I hope this was helpful and I hope all the rest are just as nice and they find a spot in your home. Great family history and stories to share.

Dear Carrie, Looking at the tulips makes me happy, and I think of a warm spring day — meaning she did a nice job with the tulips. They look real and pleasant. The other side is that it is tough to decide a value unless your aunt was someone special and recognized in the artist industry. So many people who did pastels, watercolors, oils, etc. got no recognition but did some beautiful work that was only shared with their family and friends.
