Elmo Gideon
Taryn (02/04/2013)
Hi, I have 2 Elmo Gideon paintings of Paris street scenes. My husband and I acquired them on our honeymoon a few years back. We realize that Mr. Gideon recently passed away of which we were sorry to hear. We are interested in the date and value. The paint is exposed (not under glass) however, it it vibrant and has very thick strokes which add a richness and vibrancy to the painting.

my mother-in-law has what looks like an original watercolor signed by "gideon." the ballerina and her partner are in motion and they both bear an asian resemblance. this picture has been framed behind a family portrait since the mid-late 1940s and was only just discovered. it is from miami beach. what is the best way to find out if it is authentic and what it is worth?

Gideon french street scene
Craig (11/23/2009)
I have a 12"w x 30"h original oil with signature of just Gideon. Based on the biography and the very quick rough style of painting it may be by Elmo Gideon. I would like to see other examples of his work to help verify the artist.

I have two gideon paintings
Sam Braunagel (11/03/2009)
I have two gideon paintings of paris street scenes. Both have raised paint in the work and both have frames that might have been hand carved by Gideon. These paintings have not been under glass and the paint is still very viberant. The signature appears to be authentic with "Gigeon" in the right corners. I'm interested in the projected value of these paintings. our local high school teaches Gideon in his art class. That makes me proud.

I just got a painting from My mother, and the signature on the picture is E Gideon. The picture is very old and belong to my Great Uncle. On the back of the Painting it says The Monterey Cost 2686. I was wondering is it of any value.

floyd (06/13/2009)
I have (3)three pieces by this painter in watercolor and framed. I do not know if it's advisable to open for a fine inspection of the paper. Titles (1)Cafe DesLa Poin - E. Gideon 54, (2)Versaille, (3)Place De La Concorde. All are impressive, hoping someone knowledgeable of his work will offer some detail or pointers. Thanks

How to find out it's original
Natalie (11/28/2008)
My grandmother left me what appears to be an original Gideon. Based on her stories she would have aquired this sometime in the '50's. His work is so varied I am not sure if this is the real thing. The signature looks right though. Can someone tell me where to go to find out? I have never tried to authenticate a painting before. Thanks!

E. Gideon
Pamela (01/29/2008)
My father just acquired 3 art pieces by this E. Gideon, 54. one is labeled Sutton Place. Is this the same Artist. All the info I come up on E. Gideon from Miami shows a signature not like the ones on these drawings?

Suzanne (01/13/2008)
E Gideon is Elmo Gideon an artist out of Miami (though he keeps his first name "Elmo" private and just goes by Gideon). I have a couple of his peices from his time in Paris and one of them stated "Elmo Gideon" and some other information on a typed paper taped to the backside. That was how I found out his first name.

Signature for Samuel E. Gideon
Georgia Ivie (06/12/2006)
I have a question regarding how Mr. Gideon signed his art work. Did he ever use just E. Gideon? I ask this because of an old watercolor or possibly it could be a pastel I have recently seen. I would appreciate any comment regarding this matter. G. Ivie, NC
