Customer: replied 3 months ago.
What you are seeing as far as the signature that's on the front of the painting. Let me see if I can get a better picture of it. Looks like Charles something.

Another pic
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 3 months ago.

I cannot make out that name, it does look like Charles but the last name I just cannot make it out. The painting almost looks like the old Northern tissue girls or the old shampoo ads.

It can be valued for being a Pastel Painting and Vintage, I just cannot say who did it. What size is this?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The painting is 15 by 12. The frame is 24 x 20. Is there someone this could be forwarded to that might specialize in paintings?
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 3 months ago.

Hello

We all use the same data base. Do you mean someone who might know who the child is? We do not have an art expert. One who only does art. Unless the artist signature can be read, and that artist is famous enough to be listed in one of the many data bases we use or the art sites we pay to access, there is no way to know who the subject is. Everyone will only be able to value this as a Vintage Pastel Oil Painting of a young girl by unknown artist.

But, I can opt out if you wish.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Yea. Let's try and see if someone can make it out. If you don't mind
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I'm not concerned with who it is just who painted it
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It's numbered so it really makes me curious.
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 3 months ago.

No problem.
