Burke Tyree painting value
Asked Nov 6, 2011, 12:47 PM
I have a 30" x 24" "Lion, Kenya. Original Canvas. Burke Tyree 1972" hich I bought in Honolulu, Hawaii. Label on the back "Cory Gallery, San Francisco price $500".
I researched the artist and he was known primarily for black velvet paintings.
In his later years (1970's) he was interested in endangered species.
He died at age 57 from a massive heart attack in 1979.
Would you be able to tell me an approximate value for my painting in original frame?
It's in excellent condition!
It is very different from his other works which are tropical island ladies, birds, and plants and painted on black velvet.
