Your question was

I am hoping you can give me information on a Renoir oil painting.
It is as I said an oil on canvas painting of Chrysantheme. The condition is excellent. The size is: 16x20. This piece was left to me from an Uncle who passed in California. The piece is signed bottom rt. corner, Renoir. On the edges on the backside of the canvas it says: (Maestri della Tayolozza-n.1063G. P. Auguste Renoir Vase of Chrysantheme-Rouen.Musee des Beaux-Arts)
(Amilcare Pizzi-Milan Printed in Italy by Spadem-Paris 1962)
It is an oil painting not a print. The signature looks like a real "Renoir" signature. I have been researching it but now I'm more confused! Can you tell me about this piece. Is it real or repoduction? and maybe if it has any value.
I attached a photo but not sure if it loaded.
Thank You Very Much!

Answer
Dear Theresa,

I cannot tell from the photo if it is a reproduction and could not locate the original anywhere online so I would suggest contacting the Comité Renoir to get the work authenticated to distinguish if it is real as they are the foremost experts on Renoir. I have included their information below and best of luck. Andrew Evans
