Question

unknown  
It is 24 x 36.  K ANDREA  is printed lower left.
A paper is glued to the frame of the canvas (not the outer frame) on the back saying "K. ANDREA - Born in West Germany, he arrived as a youngster in the United States and settled in New Jersey with his parents.  He attended art classes at Cooper Union in New York and finished his studies  in Boston.  He specializes in landscapes done in an impressionistic style using strong color effects."  The outer frame has a little sticker (price tag style) on back that says  "N.J. FRAME 24 x 36"
So, there are a two aspects of writing on back that both mention New Jersey.
Please offer any advice you can.  Thank you.

Answer
On initial check, I don't find anything. Looks like Monet was a big influence though.

I would have to do quite a bit of research to come up with answers.

So I take it this is an Oil on Canvas?

Yo said K ANDREA is printed?  Do you mean printed as a lithograph or are you saying the artist printed it by hand?

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.
