I inherited some Italian landscape antique art several years

Customer Question

I inherited some Italian landscape antique art several years ago and believe it could be of value. It is not signed. It belonged to my husband's grandfather's family and is rumored to have been stolen from Nazi's during WW2 and taken from Adolf Eichmann from a mistress and given to a family member to help her escape. It has been passed down in the family a couple times. How can I validate this when I don't know the author and everyone that would know in the family is dead and gone?

My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising paintings for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. Is there anything written non the back? Could even be something written on the wood stretcher.
Can you post a photo of the back?
