Do you have any information on an artist by the name of Gardonyi?

Customer Question

Do you have any information on an artist by the name of Gardonyi? I have an oil portrait of a gentleman that appears to be in the pre- to Renaissance style. It is on a 12 x 16"canvas and what appears modern stretchers. A number is ***** on the corner 35059? and on the back of the canvas someone has written "Gardonyi OA913"

As requested the images are attached. I have enhanced the signature in one file so that the brush strokes are more visible.

The name Gardonyi is a Hungarian name, but as you have learned it is not in any of the art data bases. I am checking out various spelling and other possible names.
