: : I HAVE AN ORIGINAL OIL OF FRANCA. HE PAINTED FLORALS, NUDES, LANDSCAPES, SEASCAPES AND PORTRAITS. HIS PAINTINGS WWERE DISPLAYED BY AARON BROTHERS GALLERIES IN LOS ANGELES, BEBERLY HILLS, STUDIO CITY, ETC... HE WASN FROM BRAZIL AND DIIED 1991. HE WAS NAMED THE WEST COASTN CHALLENGER OF ANDREW WYETH. THIS ARTICLE WAS FROM APPROX. 1972, AND ATTACHED TO THE PAINTING WHEN PURCHASED IN 1972. I CAN'T SEEM TO GET A REAL VALUE OF ANYTHING IOVER THE INTERNET, AND AM GOING TO TRY GOING TO AN ART DEALER. GOOD LUCK!
: :::I have a signed and numbered print that I purchased in 1988. My friend told me it would be a good investment. I paid $80.00 at that time and after he died in 1991 it's value went up to a little over $1,000's. It is very difficult to find information over the internet. Other places that you may find the value of your paintings or prints are Framing shops and art gallery's. I found Framing shops much more helpful. They usually have catalogs that you can look through that have prices on prints and paintings. Good Luck.
In my home I have 6 very large original Ozz Franca paintings which I would like to sell. They are shown at "http://www.colagallery.com" I am not an Art Dealer, but needed a way to show some s.w. art I am selling and found an on-line "gallery" to be the best way. I wrote a brief history of each artist. My paintings are worth from 25k to 40k each..... Will entertain any reasonable offer on them. Good Luck
