Q:

What is the value of a painting by Maurice Utrillo?

A:

Prices published for Maurice Utrillo paintings range from $30,000 to over $500,000, as of September 2014. Most Utrillo paintings are sold through auction houses, such as Christie's and Sotheby's. In June 2014, Christie's sold "Le Maquis de Montmartre" for $655,504.

In 2013, Christie's sold "Rue du Mont-Cenis à Montmartre" for $490,586 and "Rue à Hyères" for $415,829. The auction house noted that each sale exceeded expectations by $100,000 or more. Sotheby's sold "Le Pont St. Michel a Paris" for $56,250 in May 2014. The price point for "Le Pont St. Michel a Paris" differed from the higher-selling paintings because it depicts a waterway instead of Utrillo's signature portrayal of buildings.
