NEW Art Book will include Martin J. HeadeLes Fox
N.Y. Times bestselling authors Les and Sue Fox are doing research for a new book titled "The Art Buyers Handbook" to be published in 2011 or 2012. This book will feature stories of real people who bought valuable art at garage sales, flea markets, local auctions and estate sales. Did you know that a masterpiece by Joseph Decker ("Ripening Pears") was bought at a garage sale in 2001 for $5, and sold to the National Gallery Of Art in 2004...for $1,000,000? If you or someone you know has purchased a genuine painting by Martin Johnson Heade for a fraction of its AskArt value , we would like to publish your story in our book. Your name will be kept confidential, unless you want us to publish it. The facts must be verified, and we will need photos of your painting (original oil or watercolor, not a print, lithograph or limited edition.) Thank you. Les Fox. West Highland Publishing / West Highland Art Auction Brokers.
To all who have potential Heade's hold on to them until science defeats subjectivity!

I recently acquired an oil painting on board of two red flowers and a large white flower with green foliage in the background. On the back the metal clips have the date 1886. On the frame, which appears quite old, Martin Johnson Heade - tropicals is carved in the wood. The flowers are not as detailed as some of the paintings on this site but it is lovely and has nice detail in the background foliage. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can find out if it is authentic?
"Florida Artists, 1860-1970" will be the subject of a presentation at the Society of the Four Arts Library in Palm Beach, Florida on January 25, 2006 at 3 PM. The artwork of Martin Heade will be included. The lecture is free, but reservations are required. For a reservation please call 561-655-2766.

Was it common to trim the bottom portion of a peice to fit the stretcher?
Did any of Martin Heade's work go unsigned? Thank you for your response. Sharon
