    Hello, I got this water color from an estate sale.

    The artwork seems very good. I wonder 1) if this is an original work of reprint, 2) is the artist Ned Swill is a list artist, 3) is there any collection value for this piece?

    Thank you! rr1.jpg rr2.jpg rr3.jpg rr4.jpg rr5.jpg rr6.jpg

    Thank you Wiscbirdog. Do you think this is original or lithograph ?
    The signature seems original

    I agree. That's a very likely possibility.

    Then how do I know it is not a copy? I didn't find color spots from printer under 5X magnification, but high resolution lithograph can also achieve that. Tear off the frame is an easier way, but that will ruin the value....

    Ewell's work doesn't seem to appear often in multiples and, when it does, his prints all seem to be signed and numbered. You can open the frame and examine the piece directly. That wouldn't effect value if you do so carefully and have a local framer replace the kraft paper backing. You could also contact the Rod and Gun Club and ask. They have a Facebook page.
