  • Google
  • That's about all I found so far though...
  • From what I can see, he does some nice work. As @Taco_BeIIe said, his works have been sold at auction for anything from several hundred to several thousand dollars. If you got an original oil on canvas work, it's a very nice investment of $10!
  • what did you put in your search terms?

  • Walter Thamm (also add painting if you want). Quick glance at some of the auction houses will give you some prices. Couldn't find much of anything about the artist himself, though, other than birth, death and country. Seems his works were done around the time of the Great War and he died at the start of the Second World War, so that probably adds some historical perspective to it as well.
  • I used Walter Thamm artist, but I imagine the results are similar. Seems to be very fond of mountainous scenes. You can find lots of his works, but little about the artist himself.
  • yah thats what i was mostly trying to find is info about him, and finding really nothing... and ive been trying to find the title of the picture....
