My name is ***** ***** I"m happy to help.
Please upload clear pictures of the painting, front and back, and a close-up of the signature.
Please see our help page for help uploading images.
Go to http://www.imgur.com.
1. Click "Computer".
2. Double click the image you want to upload.
3. Click "Start Upload".
4. When the image appears on your screen, just copy the link from that page and paste it on this page.
If that doesn't work for you:
You can email the pictures to *****@******.***, and ask them to forward the pictures to me. You must tell them the pictures are for the Antiques category, and give them your user name and mine, which is Judith-on-Antiques. It is important for you to send the email from the address with which you registered at Just Answer. If you are sending them from a phone, you must put the original email address in the text.
Thanks for the pictures, Brad.
Is it at all possible that this painting was trimmed to fit the frame? Notice that the flower on the left is passing just under the edge of the frame and the signature on the right is doing the same thing. I can find no reference to an artist named Ernst Bade, but plenty to an artist named Ernst Bader, of the same period.
