Question
santos oil painting
santos oil painting  
Hi there, could you please help me to identify the artist of this oil painting please. Its a oil painting of a small village and the surrounding landscape, on canvas, 24" x 40" and its signed in the bottom left corner with the name Santos. I was given this painting about 5yrs ago, it had been on the wall of a local pub for yrs but when they refurbished, the painting was going to be  Tthrown away. A friend of mine rescued it from the skip and give it to me to sell on a car boot sale. I thought it was to nice to sell so have had it ever since, I have tried to find the artist lots of times but had no luck, any help would be fantastic.I can send more pictures should you need them. Thank you Rachael

Answer
I can't see the image very well.

Here is what we are up against.  The name Santos in Europe and the USA, along with the Latin world, is a very common name.

We need to research artists with that name until we find a match.

some of the other experts here might recognize the work and send a followup message to you.

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.
