Question
longo oil
longo oil  
Mr. Hynes,
I have an oil on canvas signed Longo 1922. I was hoping that you could provide some information about this piece. The actual flowers use very heavy paint. I would appreciate any information you could give me about the artist or artwork.
thanks,
Paul Mead

Answer
Dear Paul, I find no listing in any dictionary of artists for a Longo" that would fit this time period. The painting is of very modest merit. I am afraid this is by a self-taught "Sunday afternoon" painter, and there is no way to identify him or her.
regards,
Dan
