I dont want a call this is now seeming like a scam I will report this to Pay Pal I dont understand why you need to see the back of the painting if you are an expert please tell me what you see. I have followed the directions exactly to add files you got the first picture cant understand why you didnt get the second ones I sent.? I just added a file and I can see it I dont get why you cant?

Hello, It really is quite necessary to see the backside of a painting as there are just as many clues on the back, in terms of construction and patina, that help to date the work. ~Nora
