Fine Art/Identify artist
My wife was given a painting from her deceased great-aunt's estate. It is signed Kenneth and titled "Twin Lilies" on the Wickes tag where it was priced at $259.98 and assumed to be bought in Chicago. We were wondering who the artist might have been and whether the painting is of any value before determining which wall to hang it on. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
If you would like to send jpeg images to me please keep each image of a reasonable size (not too large), and send them as “attachments”, do not imbed them in your email. If you are looking for identification or opinion regarding your painting best would be an image of the front (just the painting, don’t include your lovely living room or pick-up truck), the back, and close-ups of the signature, details of the brush-work, and any inscriptions or labels (use the macro setting on your camera for these close-ups). You can send this information to my email at email@example.com and make your subject line “allexperts” so I do not bounce you as spam. It would be nice to receive feedback as I do this on my own time with no remuneration, free, no charge, nada. I do not research prints or artwork post-1940.
