Hello, I would agree with the posters on the links you provided, that the artist is likely the G. Vrint who lived from 1870 - 1954. From the style and framing, this appears more to be early 20th century than late 19th century. The subject is compelling and well-executed. Although there is scant information available on the artist, based on comparables, your painting could carry a conservative auction estimate of $1000 - $2000, with a possibility of exceeding the high estimate. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $4000. I will be happy to help you with more items, however I only assess one item or matched set per question on here.
