1994 friend of mine has a painting for gift from a small village by Vienna. The painting is signed P. Gauguin. I own this painting now, please if anyone has any suggestions of what I can do now to prove the authenticity of this painting.oil on canvas,size 52.5 x 40 CM.
Thank you very much.

Answer
Hello Vlado,  This is the same image that appeared a few years back on eBay!  It did not look like a work by Paul Gauguin then and it still doesn't now.  I suggest you do not bother having it authenticated unless you have a rock solid provenance for the work.  Cheers, Brent
