Question
Girl with a Broom
Girl with a Broom  
I have a beautiful Painting (thick oil) of The Girl with a Broom.
It is small 8"X10" done on a old canvas. It is very dirty and I can not see a signature.
Should I get it cleaned or leave it be?
I at first thought it was a boy but I have been told differently.
Any info you can give me I would greatly appreciate it.

Answer
Hello Jeanette,  It is very difficult more me to interpret the work using the image you provided.  It appears to be a late 19th or early 20th Century painting but I cannot tell much else.  I suggest you take it to an art dealer in your area that is specializes in 19/20th Century paintings and ask for their opinion about the painter of the work and what to do regarding conservation.  Cheers, Brent
