Is the artist well known ?
How long ago was it painted ?
what did you pay for it, if you don't mind my asking ?
It's value has probably risen as has everything else.
It has a very nice oriental stylised look.
A leading artist in the wildlife world. She is an expert at linocut prints. Very much sought after - limited runs of never more than 40 but often less due to mechanics of reproduction. This one her latest & introduced only a few weeks ago and nearly sold out already. Specialises in Norfolk scenes. Prices very reasonable - around the £300 area. I have a reasonably large collection of her work which is always in demand secondhand but I keep them because I like them.

Another fine Norfolk (and Shetlands) landscape artist is Nicholas Barnham - watercolours and prints. He's now an elderly gentleman and I've been collecting him for years - prices now increasing and original work much sought after secondhand. Angus & Barnham's Norfolk work is visually complementary (IMHO). Myself & her ladyship have always bought art (we do art deco stuff also!) that we like: if it increases in value then that's a bonus. Difficult to go wrong if you buy quality (the art-collecting millionaires of this world aren't stupid are they?) unless, for some reason it goes out of fashion. But if you like it - who cares?

Prices aren't cheap though.

This was one of the submissions for the 2016 Turner prize: but is it art?

I love Turner's work. Very clever and original for its time. The rubbish entered for the Turner prize imho abuses his name.
Wish they would rename it as the crap prize or something more suitable.

For something different I like the Spanish artist Miro. I have a couple of prints in this style and they really brighten up the wall on a dull winter day – not everyone's cup of tea I suspect though. Shame my prints aren't originals (even the lithos were quite expensive) because I suspect they would be worth a bob or two by now! (As I tell the few artists I know: you've got to be dead before you can become famous).
