Heading is:

´´CLAUDE MONET - OIL ON CANVAS PAINTING - HIGHLY LISTED´´

That means, this (your) Claude Monet is highly listed.

This will bring trouble, d1fficult.

Regards

Wasbach

A period picture* no need to try and take it out of context, stop pretending you don´t know what I mean.



Catch up Vietato.



Oh, so you´re an expert on paintings Vietato, awesome, then you must know much more refined and difficult stuff, please enlighten me.

Hi, d1fferent, What happened with the eBay auction of this painting ? I saw a bid of 400£ this afternoon and you lowered the reserve so that the bid was accepted. Now I see that auction has ended and reserve not reached ? Regards, Raf.

What does ´´period to the picture´´ mean? I just don´t know that phrase in English.

If the Bonham-man thinks everything is right, then it´s by Claude Monet - at least in his opinon [8D]



(Oh, I see we are not talking about the Monet anymore) [:I]

Still interested in the meaning of the phrase, though!



Regards,

Vietato

Hi d1fferent, I was watching it and perhaps, depending on the amount at the last moment waiting for bidding or not. This painting is from a Flemish painter and as I am from Flanders ... But I also had to consider the restoration costs as I told you before. When I should have bought it I did not have the intention to resell it but keep it for myself. Hopely you get a good price at Bonhams auction. Otherwise you can try Bernaerts or another good auction house in Antwerp. Regards, Raf.

Hello, I am speaking to an acquaintance about the painting tomorrow, at Bonhams, and he thinks everything is right, and period to the picture, from the email I have sent him, but he would prefer to see the painting in first hand, so I am going to try and get him to authenticate it, as I believe this will help it, where you just watching it or considering bidding may I ask ??

That maybe because it is a bargain Vietato...



You make a valid point, and I believe it would be best to take it off, I just want to advertise it the best was possible !! This may not be a service they permit, so for my own safety I will remove this, thanks for the genuine guidance, it goes a long way !!

It´s very kind of the Bonhams´ fine arts specialist to let you use the name of the auction house to endorse your eBay auction.



I think that´s unprecedented.



(And i DO believe you are telling the truth, I am merely saying that auction houses normally will not allow their evaluations/authentications published outside the house. And they might feel ´´taken hostage´´ for your own opinion that this painting, if repainted and cleaned, would sell for at least £20,000 in a gallery.

That you sell it with a starting price of £135, which is less than £150, as you emphasize, with a very low reserve, well, that seems to be a bargain!)

d1fferent...I guess Vietato is not the only one who speaks English as a second language. That last post of yours, I am not sure what language that was. It didn´t even make sense.

Your own expertise, is defiantly something to brag about Virtato, believe me.



I think you have mis understood entirely what I said, I mearly meant to say, it is a period piece, so he thinks it looks to be painted around when this artist was around, is this now making sense to you Vietato, or do you want me to try and explain it again for good luck.

I like jumping on band wagons to it is fun, hey, look at me jumping on a band wagon, so fun, this is hilarious !!



I absolutely ridicule the fact how you refer to that week point, which is totally irrelevant as me and the buyer cancelled the transaction... So, nearly a good idea trying to refer to the facts, but it turned out to be fiction for you.

Hello different



do you think it´s correct and fair to have bought on ebay on 10/02 item no 27052672509 a monet painting at 1,99 GBP et sold the same item on 7/03 at 95 GBP item no 320495984381 ... with the mention ´´ Claude Monet is highly listed, and very prolific ´´ ... ´´ I hope that your fair trade ! will continue but with a name like antique fine art you are very close to swindling ...

You are getting me wrong, d1fferent.

English is my second language, and it happens all the time that I see expressions that I don´t know and might consider using.

Of course I can understand that this has something to do with a painting of the period.

I was just interested in knowing if something can be ´´period to´´, or if it´s a common expression.

But this forum is not about language, so I regret my question, sorry!



My own expertise is not something to brag about. I like to learn.



Regards,

Vietato

Hi d1fferent, After what I have read here on this forum I am no longer interested in it. Thanks and good luck ! Raf.
