There is a sticker on the back of the painting with Artistic Interiors Inc.’s label and a certification number.
I can’t make out the name of the artist and would like to track this painting down.
Chances are you will never be able to track the artist down because the artists who painted the paintings that suppliers like Artistic Interiors sold were not allowed to use their own name.
Artistic Interiors sold decoration art, paintings that were done by the thousands by artist in Europe and Mexico. These factory mill type paintings where then framed in Made in Mexico frames and sold as decoration art in places like furniture stores, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Sears, etc. They also are marketed through ‘Artist Sales’ on television sometimes. I’m sure you’ve seen the commercials; ‘Original Oil Paintings Starting At $29.95’. You’ll also see these ‘decoration’ or ‘tourist’ paintings being sold on street corners in larger cities sometimes.
The point is, even if you could read the name of the artist it probably isn’t likely to be their real name anyway. And if you’re hoping this painting is worth a lot of money to some art collector it won’t be.
There’s nothing wrong with the decoration art being sold and sometimes some of the artist are pretty damn good. a lot of them probably do their own serious art on their own away from the artist factory. But as decoration art it’s only real value is to the owner of the art. if you love the painting then that is what matters.
