    Appraisal Transcript:
    GUEST: It's a painting by Raymond Johnson and it was given by Raymond and his brother Arthur to my great-aunt. And that was passed to my parents, and my parents gave it to me about 15 years ago.

    APPRAISER: The painting is clearly signed. It's dated, 1926. It was in 1938 that he had cofounded this transcendental art movement. Sort of a funky name. And it really is sort of an offshoot of European modernism. There's a movement away from painting objects as they really exist. It's an emphasis on spirituality, it's an emphasis on moving away from pure form. This, therefore, is a little bit atypical because it is a lot more representational, let's say, than what he's known for. Auction purposes today, you're probably talking about $25,000 to $35,000. It's really a valuable thing.

    GUEST: Oh, my gosh. That's wonderful. Thank you.
