Question
Hello I believe I may have a painting by Gerard Ernest Schneider. It is an Acrlyic or Oil on board and an abstract, it measures 24" x 32" and has a tag on the back "Chicago Arts Club Exhibition", it also has the Name G. Schneider on the back with the tile as "Compostion". It is signed on the front and looks similar to his correct signature from some of the other paintings I have researched by him.  I am checking with the Arts Club of Chicago for when he may of exhibited there, I have to narrow down the time from though for them to look it up. I did find out however that he did indeed exhibit in the USA, a solo exhibition (s). This is exactly what they had told me there. The photos are not the best, I will have better ones in a few days, but just wandering what you thoughts are?  http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v291/squaredealforu/schneider.jpg

Answer
Hello Jim,

I would need to see the actual painting to be sure but from the images and description provided it looks like it could very well be a painting by Gerard Schneider.

Is there a date on the painting or the labels?  What is its provenance?

Cheers, Brent
