I need to find an appraiser in Palm Beach County for his artwork that I own.
my pieces by Frank Beatty
my husband and I met Mr. Beatty in Palm Beach,and bought several pieces directly from him;oils and watercolors. I have a large montage of very old buildings/homes in Palm Beach and the Seabord RR Station in West Palm Beach.
The center piece is Henry Morrison Flagler's home, now a museum, and his personal RR car. I would love to talk to anyone interested in his Florida pieces of work. (Not for sale)

palm beach paintings
I met Frank in Palm Beach and purchased several of his paintings. (late 70s)
I would love to obtain more information on him, and possible value of my pieces. My favorite is a montage of Palm Beach and West Palm Beach.
In 1966 Mr Beatty painted a portrait of me in oils. At that time, he was working in Chicago and was doing a promotion for Montgomery Wards. I still have the portrait.
The Master of Montage
After winning the Commonwealth Edison Yearbook Contest in his home town of Winnepeg in 1929, Mr. Beatty spent 30 years with Popular Mechanics Magazine. 10 as an illustrator, and 20 as the Director of the arts program. Then traveled through the US, and Europe.
