Question
Old Painting of lady
Old Painting of lady  
I have this icture/painting can't tell the difference it has markings in the lower
right corner R. Tamme maybe I am not sure it is all in black and white. The
newspaper that's behind it says 1886. could you tell anything about it. Or
maybe what the value would be. Thanks Valerie

Answer
Based on the image, it a.) looks like a poster/print and b.) not an original. But of course, that is based merely on that fuzzy picture.  Would need better photos for more accurate info, including labels/documentation on the back. Subject matter and style suggest mid-late 19th century era work; perhaps American or French.
