Fine Art/Indentify oil on canvas signed "de silva"


I have a medium size (22" x 40") oil on canvas simply signed "de silva". My mother recalls it has always been around In her life. So it's at least 65 years old, if her memory is correct. We seem to know nothing else about this piece. It would just be nice to know the history behind the person who painted it; if there is a history to know. Thank you for your time. This is a remarkable service.

Dear Glen,

Thank you for your question. I can take a look at it and see if I can find the artist information. Please send me jpeg images of the front, back, and signature to: Please paste your original question in the text of the email for me.

Best regards,

Fine Art
