IT LOOKS LIKE A CAPITAL FR. THEN THERE IS A PETGZ. IT IS A MOUNTAIN LANDSCAPE WITH TREES, CHURCH,CHALET, AND CHICKENS ALONG A PATH THAT RUNS OFF THE CENTER OF BOTTOM OF THE PAINTING. IT WAS PURCHASED SOMETIME IN THE 1960S IN GERMANY SO THE DATE IS PROBABLY WHEN IT WAS PAINTED. DO YOU HAVE A IDEA OF THE ARTIST AND POSSIBLE VALUE?
