Customer Question

I have an oil painting that was my grandfathers. I don't know where he got it just that he had it since early 1900's. Can you tell me if it is worth anything, I can't read the artist name as it is very old and dirty, also it's done on canvas but there
is a board in the back

Hi,
What is the size of the painting?
At your convenience, please send a very clear, in-focus close-up of the signature as well as a head-on view of the painting both front and back (please do not remove from frame).
Thanks!
