I have a 30x24 painting titled Two Girls At the Piano signed

Customer Question

I have a 30x24 painting titled Two Girls At the Piano signed by Renoir. The little history that I know is that it was brought here from Italy by a Grandfather. The painting is done on canvas in excellent shape, however it has to be dirty. Renoir's name was hidden behind an old homemade wooden frame. I found it at a garage sale. The painting attracted me because of the impressionist style. Yet I was more interested in the framing. I am not a collector of art nor was I even familiar with Renoir. I did a lot of research on the painting, and of course I am wondering if it is authentic. Please help!
