Hello

The signature cannot be read, which is not uncommon, a lot of art the signatures cannot be read. If you like a value can be obtained for what it is. There are thousands and thousands works of arts that are out there where the signature cannot be read but, values are obtained. If you would like a value based on that, I can help you.
