Customer Question

I have a painting by Frank Allison that has a stamp on the back of the canvas that says FWA registry no. 10-15-71231. I have tried to look this number up with no luck. I assume the past owner registered the painting but I am having no luck finding out information on the painting. Do you have any suggestions on where to look up this info?

The stamp on the back says FWA Artist Allison Subject is blank Registry NO. 10-15-71231 then it states that the artist retains copyright and reproduction is prohibited. I believe the artist is Frank Allison. I have another painting by a different artist with the same stamp on the back and different registry number.
