Fine Art/Eduard Grutzner (Painting)
I recently purchase a Grutzner painting from an antique dealer in Maryland. It is paint on a wood panel approx. 5 x 8 in.. I understand it came from an estate sale in the Pocanos in Pennsylvania.
Frankly, I am not sure if it is a reproduction or an original painting. It doesn´t appear to be signed. The painting and frame are clearly old and need to be restored.
I am sendng a picture attached. If you need more please advise. I would appreciate your opinion.
Thanks for your help,
Dear Barry, It is very common to find these small Grutzners in Antique and resale shops. It is not real. It is a reproduction, glued to a panel and varnished. Anytime you see a genre (people in interiors or at activities)painting in such a small size it is almost always a reproduction. I even bought one from a person in Argentina, it was a varnished over postcard with paint added.
