The unknowns

Some of my favorite pieces in our collection are by unknown artists. Ian has such a good eye and can spot a gem from a mile away. He often picks up works at auction or estate sales or even pawn shops and thrift stores. He’s constantly on the lookout and these hunts often have surprising results. If we can’t decipher the signature, sometimes there are clues on the back of the piece such as a price tag where it was purchased originally. Other times we can read the signature, but then can find nothing on the internet about the artist.
