I stumbled upon these two art prints at a yard sale. Can't remember if I paid $10 or $15 each but figured the frames alone were worth that.
I like how they are kind of beat up.
I actually passed these up but couldn't get them off my mind so returned later in the day to get them, and surprise! They were still there. The reason I almost walked away is because I didn't have a clue where they would fit. Not to mention our upcoming move. But when I went back and read about the artist, I knew it was meant to be.
Joseph Petro was a medical illustrator. He graduated from Cincinnati College of Medicine. I might put these in Doc's office some day.
I have no idea if they are worth a lot. The names of the prints are Bay Plate I and Chestnut Plate II. The backings say, "... certified to be one print of 5,000 and checked and autographed by the artist."
Maybe one of you have heard of this artist?
I am making them fit in my foyer. Sometimes we just have to make things fit.
Actually, I'm not totally convinced myself that it would help. What do you think? Would an outdated fixture kill the sale of a house? Or better yet, do you think I would get the total bang for my buck?
