Question
Hello
First of all , I Thank you for this nice service.
I bought recently a paint from 93 year old died ladies grandsons.
This Paint signed by W J 928  ... like this.On the left down of paint.
Oil painting, But This is not a canvas painting.
Painted to hard and thick carton.
Backside of paint have very old ( circa 1900 ) Constantinople company label who framed.This company also trading frame and art paintings.
Do you give me some information about that sign,artist and some more ???
I will be send a photo also.if needed.
Thank you very much

Answer
Sounds like it could be a replica or museum store mounted poster?

You have to determine the medium and then go from there.
Some were printed and then a clear varnish brushed on to give the impression of brush stokes. With only initials and a number, it gives the impression of production art.  The only way to be sure, would be to have it examined in person. I suggest taking it to an art framer/gallery in your area and see if they can determine what it is.

Expertise

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
