Fine Art/Painting artist question


I have a oil on canvas landscape painting that i found in a trash bin. It is signed on the lower right side with the name Snyder, I believe. The n is not really visible to me. the subject matter is two bushy type trees and a small shack/building in midground and trees and sky in background. It is very nicely done. I thought it may be a William Snyder painting but the signatures are not the same. Any ideas who it could be?

Dear Dion,

Unfortunately I do not know who your work could be by. The landscape you depicted is very vague and popular among artists and without a clear signature there is not much that can be done by anyone. What I can suggest is that you try taking it to a local auction house on a free evaluation day and see if they might be able to assist you as they have trained experts in a bevy of art categories who might be familiar with the work or style and point you in the correct direction. Best of luck. Andrew Evans
