Question
Painting
Painting  
I have an oil painting that has been in my family for at least 3 generations. I believe the signature says Arnould. I am sure it is quite old. It measures 24" x 20". Can you help me?
Thank you very much.

Answer
Hello Anita,

I am not sure who the artist is but in my opinion the painting is very poorly executed and therefore most likely executed by an amateur artist. The frame appears to be quite nice.  I suggest the work's fair market value is under $500.00.

Cheers, Brent
