Question
I have a large oil painting signed F Winter,below signiture is Munich.The painting came from Bavaria,post war 50's,may have been bought from an Anheiser Bush related estate near Munich.Any way to find out more about origin of painting or who would be best person to ask.Also have smaller paintings prob from same area just signed W R.

Answer
Dear Jon, I do not research artwork post-1940, my art refernce library does not include modern or contemporary art. However if you have a painting by Fritz Winter (1905-1976) it is worth considerable money, they sell at auction from $10,000 to $50,000.
Cordially,
Dan
