Customer Question

Good morning....I have two impressionist oil paintings, one by B. Major, framed especially for Macy's way back in the day, and the other by an artist I can only identify as Martin.
Please , what can you tell me about Major's piece,Autumn Black Forest and who is the artist Martin. I've had these for oh, gosh.....about 30 years now and it's only now that I even thought about inquiring into them.
Thank you in advance for your time. I am anxious and interested in anything you may be able to tell me about them.
Respectfully,
Ginny Moore ***@******.***

If it's not too much extra bother, can you tell me about when each of these may have been painted?

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
What is the size?
At your convenience, please send photos.
A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora
