Is this a print? If so what size is it? Is it marked in anyway, whether on the print or the back of the frame?

Do you mean this is an Oil Painting on Canvas? It does not appear to be an oil painting. Can you send me a clear close up with a brighter lighting?

Is this oil on canvas behind glass, they normally would not put an oil painting behind glass because the oil paints need to breathe. Is this signed by the artist and is the frame marked by a maker.
