I bought a painting at auction a few days ago. It's a seascap

Customer Question

Hi, I bought a painting at auction a few days ago. It's a seascape looking out from a bay at sailing ships with a large 3 masted ship as the focal point. Its signed by- and this is the problem as I cant make it out- either A or D Murhictile or Murhictus. It's framed by Higgins and Bowers
Can you help ?
