Question
Hello Brent, thanks so much for your response to my original question. As a follow up here are some detailed photos, if ou look real hard you can see in the signature that the "i" is dotted with a circle and not filled in, typical for him. Also you can see the paint strokes better, I believe from the tag that it is from the early 60's. I have no other provenance, below are the links to more detailed photos, thanks Jim.

Answer
Hello Jim,

Not all of the links you provided are active.  I have some doubts that the painting is by the hand of Gerard Schneider for the composition does not look like other works by this artist that I have viewed.  The signature is the last thing you should consider for it is easy to falsify a signature.

What is on the back of the work?  Please send me an image.  

What size is it?

Cheers, Brent
