GUEST: This is a watercolor from John Whorf. He was a close personal friend of my grandparents. It's looking down St. James Avenue in Boston, so the Boston Public Library is in front and Trinity Church is on the right.
APPRAISER: John Whorf, as you know, was a Boston native. He painted Copley Square over and over again. It is one of the most desirable locations in terms of the different Boston scenes that he did. It is a watercolor. In an auction we would suggest an estimate of $6,000 to $8,000.
