Nadeau's description of the painting I won was accurate and thorough. Also, the shipper I used was able to pick-up and ship the painting less than a week after the auction.

Great Items with Rapid Fire Shipping
The items I won were better than I was expecting and the shipping of my items was much quicker than I'm used to with other auction houses. This was my first time bidding with Nadeau's Auction Gallery and hopefully, there will be more in the future... Many thanks for a great on line auction event and experience
