Fine Art/Oil Painting
I have what I think is an oil on canvas. Signature looks like J.bedo, could be I.beoo. I think belonged to my great grandmother who was Jewish. The picture is of the head and shoulders of what looks like a Jewish man smiling with red hair, there are buildings in the background with part of a sign in unusual writing. My great grandmother escaped from Nazi Germany at the begining of the war, she lost almost all her relatives. This picture is amazing, I really hope you can help me.
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 embed 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 (90% of respondents do not send me images of the back, I can obtain nearly as much information from the back as from the front), 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
