Hi.... I am actually writing here to see if anyone can guide me on where to go with the General Chennault oil painting that my grandfather Joseph N. Grady gave to me prior to his death. He told me the story that the General's right hand man painted this portrait of Claire Lee Chennault during the war and just before leaving Burma General Chennault gave my grandfather the painting. He carried this all portrait through the whole war and it is in immaculate condition. So what I am asking if anyone here knows where I could get this painting appraised or more information on it. Please.... thank you for any help that one can give me on this.

I think it would be very helpful in answering your questions if you could tell us the name of the artist who was General Chennault's "right hand man." What was your grandfather's association with either Chennault or the artist; why Chennault gave him the painting instead of keeping it himself.  It would also help if you could put up an image of the painting in question with its dimensions. That might help us all with an evaluation for you.
Thanks!

I agree with Lydia.  Whatever info you can provide, and if you can post a picture, I can take that to the Chennault Museum here in town and see if they or the living family know anything.
