Hello,

My name isCustomerand I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the completed framing.

I got one of the label on the back and one of a nurse registration form, I think you may have chosen the wrong photo.

This is one of the studies he did for the painting that I first showed you.

I will add a picture of the piece in the museum in Budapest so you can see how large it is (has since been sent to Canada).

The study and the painting have both been sold as smaller reproduction on canvas and paper

for many years now. The piece you have is a print or reproduction onto canvas or board

as the original (there can only be one original of a piece of art) is owned by the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Canada currently.

This piece is valued at $75 to $100 as a print or giclee on canvas.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit the submit button, thanks!
