Fine Art/Oil Painting Question on artist


Hi Dolly,
I have an oil painting rather large in size. Painting is of a village with huts, trees, bushes, and a peasant girl holding a basket. The artists name is C. Shain. Can you tell me anything about this painting?

Dear Ann,

I am not familiar with the artist. I will take a look and give you as much information as I can based on quality photographs. Email high resolution jpeg attachments of the full painting, back of painting, signature, and any other writing on the frame or canvas. You can email them to

Best regards,

Fine Art

I can assist with identification, acquisition, representation, and care of fine art prints and original paintings. I can provide information that will assist you in determining the value of your art; but I do not give valuations on allexperts.
