Hello, In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to know the size and see images of the front, back (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up of the signature. If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end. Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here. ~Nora

Hi Nora, unfortunately i store the painting in another location, and I am currently not able to make a photo of its back :-( I attach 2 photos. In one, the more colorful one, I enhanced the colors in a graphic program a bit for a better visibility - only in one of the photos. The other is as-is. The painting is ca. 25x35 centimeters. No artist's signature is visible. It has been in my family "forever", my grandma inherited it in 1945 and it was already "forever" in the family. It is an oil painting on canvas.
Thanks a lot,
Agnieszka
