Ted Lewy - Arts Creation

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco Art : One Thread

I have two framed, original watercolors depicting life in San Francisco by an artist named Ted Lewy. The sealed paper backing is stamped Ted Lewy - Arts Creation, San Francisco, California. Can anyone give me any information on this artist or perhaps the value of these paintings?

Visit Walt's Postcards online - you'll find a little bio on Ted. Very interesting!

I also have 2 signed prints from Lewy dated may 31st 1955, they were copyrited in 1952 T.L., has anyone found anything more about these prints

This is more of a question than an answer, I have recently aquired two Ted Lewy prints, one of these framed and sealed prints is of "Hyde Street Cable Car" and the other is "Powell Street Turntable" The size of the print is about 11" x 9" yet the size, including the frame and border, is about 19" x 15". I have seem lots of questions about Mr. Lewy but no real information regarding the value of his works or where you can find anymore of them. I really like the colors and the cartoon type painting. If anyone has any informatin can you please inform a first time collector.

I have a watercolor by Ted Lewy of the President Wilson ship, dated 1948. Where do you go to fine the value of such an artwork

I also have a Ted Lewy print. One of a flower cart on Powell or corner of Market and Powell. The print I believe has a copyright of 1956. The print is signed by Ted Lewy and dated May 1957. It is about 8.5x11 in size. It is a very colorful print and I have enjoyed it for years. Just today decided to look up the name on the internet and discovered many interesting facts about the artist. Does this have some value or enough value that I should have it insured? Would appreciate an opinion on this. Thanks.

I have three Ted Lewy watercolors. The Fishnet mending, cable car and Flower Stand.

Am interested in the values of these?
