Question
The Swing [?]
The Swing [?]  
Can anyone identify this small painting that has been in my family for years?

Answer
Hi Avery, this is a beautiful image although I am not familiar with this piece. I recommend contacting Christies http://christies.com/ or Sothebys http://www.sothebys.com/ auction houses, as they are the two largest auction houses in the world. They may have an expert who knows this piece. If there is one near where you live, you can also take it to a Bonham's Valuation Day http://www.bonhams.com/cgi-bin/public.sh/pubweb/publicSite.r?sContinent=EUR&scre . I hope this helps, and good luck to you!
