My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. I got the one picture of the signature.

The next step would be for me to see pictures of the painting,
any labels on the back of the completed framing. If it is open in the back, I'd like to see the canvas construction and condition of the back. It helps date the painting.

Hello, I am trying to send pictures but it is saying the file is too large. Is there another way?
Expert:  Rarewares replied 10 months ago.

You can email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'for rarewares in antiques' in the subject line.
Use the same email that you used when creating your account so that they will recognize you.
These do not arrive instantly (they get forwarded to me from the admin of the site), so thanks in advance for some patience when sending this way (might be overnight).
