    Hargrove paintings

    Have a chance to get 2 Hargrove certified oil paintings for $15. I see they don't sell great on eBay but are there other outlets for these or should I pass

    Thanks and good luck

    With any art, my humble opinion is buy what you like. If they are originals and you like them it appears to be a great buy. I'm not real sure what you mean by "certified" though. He does lovely work and if authentic, could be worth a lot someday, and until then would make a wonderful addition to your home.

    I have 1 Hargrove. It's an old time General store scene. I bought it because I liked the content. It's a limited edition of 750 from 1983 pictured here, 3rd down on the left - Hargrove Paintings 1982-84 Limited Editions Regardless of the prices listed there, I don't think they are worth much yet. Someday... maybe. BTW- You can list yours on that site. http://www.hargrovepaintings.com/wordpress/

    From what you just described, you artwork is a print rather than a painting. LEs refer to a print edition, is it signed by Hargrove? As such, worth a lot less than an original painting. That being said, if it is hand signed, it is still an original print, and has a significant value. If you can afford to and you like it, I would advise to hang onto it and wait for the economic winds to shift and then possibly sell it, if you haven't become too attached to it. Almost no matter what, it's value will probably increase the longer you hold on to it (be advised that I know nothing of Hargrove, but my statement refers to general art trends).

    It is a serigraph on canvas. The limited editions are each signed and "hand enhanced" by the artist (more likely- one of his employees). In his first few years of doing the limited edition sets, they were numbered to 750, around 1986-87 they increased to 1000. There were also 20 artists proofs of each picture, those would be the money. BTW- H. Hargrove is a pseudonym.

    I found this-

    The chances of this being an original oil painting are, unfortunately, low. "H. Hargrove," the well-known pseudonym of Italian artist, Nicolo Sturiano, has become an exceedingly wealthy man by almost single-handedly popularizing the notion of collecting "limited edition" prints- on paper and on canvas. The really unfortunate part of this, for any person buying art specifically for re-sale, is that an edition can be in the hundreds or it can be in the thousands. Add to that that there are even different types of prints, and you reeeeeally have to be an "H. Hargrove" specialist to know what kind of canvas you actually have. You'd think such information would be placed on the print, but that seems to be a part of Sturiano's genius. Being not only a gifted artist, but an insightful businessman, as well, he realized that such confusion could be worked so that it was of benefit to him, so, in order to gain any real knowledge of his full body of work, you almost have to join the "Hargrove Collector's Guild." (This is about the only way to be assured of gaining access to the entire list of all the "H. Hargrove" prints and paintings, as Sturiano has been nothing if not exceedingly productive in his "Hargrove" role.)
