Question
Two robins in the snow
Two robins in the snow  
I know almost nothing about this painting. It was in my mothers house.  I am wondering how old this painting is, and who the artist is.  If this is something that doesn't fall under your expertise could you point me in a right direction. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer
Thank you for your inquiry.  

It looks as if the signature reads "C. Berg" but I cannot match your C. Berg to any listed artist.  I would fathom this was painted in the 1960s.  Just a guess.  It has a modern look to it.  Almost Jackson Pollock with birds!   

If it isn't too big, don't be bashful about porting it around to a few local galleries, auction houses or dealers and ask what they think of it.

Otherwise...enjoy it!

Expertise

American Fine Art Paintings.
Oils, Watercolors, Sketches. Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century. Hudson River School, Pennsylvania Academy, Cape Ann artists, Ash Can, Woodstock, Florida Indian River, American Impressionists, etc. I can provide some background about artists and perhaps a rough appraisal or guidance towards obtaining a value. I am acquainted with many of the best American art dealers and auction houses. Original works only, I do not follow the print market. I do NOT field questions about prints.

Important to know
I am not expert in European art. I encourage you to send questions on European artists to other experts on this service. NO PRINTS:I encourage you to seek help on prints elsewhere. Two sites come to mind: www.artoftheprint.com and www.philaprintshop.com

Experience

I have been collecting original American Fine Art for over 20 years. I have curated art shows, and I have served as a dealer, providing appraisals and guidance for the last 8 years.
