Unfortunately, there is little information available about J Perrine or his oil painting of ducks landing in a pond, so it's hard to say how much this piece could be worth. If you are keen to attain an appropriate valuation, perhaps you could try an art gallery or historian of some sort to give you a valuation.

A common notion shared by many is that you should buy art that you love purely for the aesthetic or sentimental value it provides you with, rather than for its investment potential. If you are keen to get rid of the piece, your local auction house should have some idea of what reserve price to put on the painting and then you can have the fun in seeing how much it goes for.
Art has long been one of the most lucrative attractions at many auctions, the most expensive piece ever sold at auction is currently famed abstract painter Jackson Pollock's No. 5, dating from 1948 which sold for $140 million in 2006.
The two painters who feature most in the current top 10 list of most expensive artworks are Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso. Van Gogh only actually sold one painting in his lifetime and so the $670 million that his paintings in the list have received will have gone to his family. Picasso on the other hand became a rich man through his work.
