Customer Question

I inherited a beautiful painting 36" x 62". It is signed in what looks like ISSE J M - the M looks like possible a character from a nonEnglish alphabet with the roman numerals 1962. I'm trying to identify the artist. It is oil depicting what looks like a pied piper over a tumultuous ocean.

Hi,

At your convenience, please send a very clear, in-focus image of the signature and the backside (do not remove from frame) as well as a clear in-focus extreme close-up of the surface so I can see the texture.

Hi There,

I have not found a match to this for you.

I will opt-out and your question will open again to all the experts. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra. There is not a guarantee that you will receive a response.

I will not be able to respond back after opting-out

I do hope you find the information that you seek.
