I found a painting. Its a miniature painting. About the size of a bigger cell phone. Its a water painting of a lady in a black dress around the late 1700s , maybe early 1800s.. She was a mistress of some politician. I found the painting framed, inside another frame. I broke both frames. But was told it maybe valuable because someone took the time to frame the frame.. The artist is painted by A.E Chalon and engraved by C. Heath. I now nothing of art and would like to find out if this painting is worth anything before i toss it back out

Hi, You say that you know little about Art, so I want to explain Why several photos are Important. When you say "water painting", is it a Watercolor ( a kind of paint used) or a depiction of ocean, lake, river, etc.? It may be an Engraving or a Copy of one, like a lithograph, for one example, because a Painting would not have the Names with methods on it. Most likely, it is an Engraving, Copying an Original Painting. Photos should show one of Complete thing, as you found it; Close-ups of Signature/Initials, Dates, Company/Address, Special or Unclear parts of the Art work---on the Front/Obverse! On Back/Reverse,similar detail where there is any; one of the Strokes, if clear, and of the canvas, paper, board, etc. The Dimensions, too, please--Height, Width, with and w/o Frame. All I can think of now, but will help clear up some uncertainty, I hope. Good Luck! Factor

In the context of water painting, whether referring to a depiction of water bodies like oceans, lakes, or rivers, or the usage of watercolor as a painting medium, photo documentation plays a key role in capturing the essence of the artwork. It assists in capturing the textures, colors, and nuances of water representations, highlighting the significance of this element within the artwork and its visual impact.
