Question
I am trying to find out who painted my painting and if they were Canadian. The signature reads "A Quiet Whiff" A.H. 1890. the only other marks are the name of a gallery, the Little gallery in Winnipeg.

thanks!

Answer
Hello Gage,  There have been a few 'Little Gallery' in Winnipeg over the years and the phone book says there is one there now.  I suggest you contact them Little Gallery 396 Notre Dame Ave Winnipeg MB, R3B 1R1 Phone: 204-942-4620 and ask if they have any records that would help you determine who painted your painting.  Cheers, Brent
