    auction house?
    I'm not sure how auctions worth. Doesn't it mean I can get any price on the painting rather than its worth..? Which I guess can be both good and bad

    Google search for a Bonhams in your area, I believe valuations are free of charge. Re. auctions; you can set a reserve price - I think you have to pay a larger percentage of the sale if you do so. Maybe record tomorrow's episode of Flog It! and watch it to find out some stuff.

    the only thing is bonhams are into authentic older art try this place they offer deals on nearly anything if it has a half decent resale value http://www.prestigepawnbrokers.co.uk/
