Hello,

The only picture here is of the back. Please use the Add Files feature to add pictures of the painting as well. I would also like to see the back of the whole frame so that I can see the frame construction.

The pictures are here, yes. I do not recognize this artist's signature, so I will opt-out and allow another expert to answer. They will be able to see your photos, so you will not have to add them again.
