(not alvin fisher). New England, frame from Coldwells(125 yr old art and frame co)) New Bedford Who is she/he, very elusive info on this artist.Caldwell sticker on back of frame, no date, landscape   river scene, clouds, trees, oil painting on vcanmvas excellent condition  old frame and canvas,  purchased in Mass early 60,s very old paintings, I live in marietta ga.

Sounds like a terrific picture.  Can you please send me an image via this service?  As you are aware, there are many, many Fishers who are listed American artists in the time period you describe.  I should like to see the picture.  Artists have always experimented with numerous styles for signing paintings, although the raised R is of interest, it may not be the best way to identify the artist.

Are you looking to sell the painting or value it for insurance purposes?  Or simply identify the artist?
