Hello,

What is the size of this and can you please send a very clear, in-focus image of the signature at lower right as well as an image of the backside (do not remove from frame).

Hi,

I am wondering if you are still interested in having your item assessed?

Please let me know and do you have requested images available?

I look forward to reading back from you.

Sincerely,

Nora

I'm sorry didn't mean to send it.
I will be waiting to see if you're able to decipher the signature if not I will try myself with a magnifying glass
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 2 years ago

Hi,

The best I can see in the image of the signature is H. Matt______ or H. Mall______. I did a name match search through the database of listed artists and there was not one.

If you can try some images in natural light of just the signature or a high contract black and white may pick it up.

As well, a photo of the backside of the painting (do not remove from frame) will help establish date.
