This painting, acrylic on canvas by Hans Baker, was created in the 1950 to 1960 time period based on the style of painting and type of frame.
He was not a listed artist, and was likely a regional artist that worked in the area of Iowa or wherever your grandparents found the piece.
The first name is ***** ***** there were a lot of German immigrant families from the Amana colonists that settled in Iowa in the mid to late 1800's, so he could have been a descendant of those families that settled in that state.
This painting has a current value of $40 to $60 retail.
