We have a 20x24" size oil painting probably in the original pinewood (or some soft wood) frame with the signature of the painter J. Perrine. It has a label attached to the frame saying The Art Affairs, Inc. Certified authentic work of art A-36743. The painting is that of a castle with a three-arched bridge on the right over a river and various trees on both banks of the rive, but in the far background there is a forest or group of white trees (both the canopies and the trunks are white) Any idea if this might be valuable?
