Fine Art/Question regarding a painting

Question
Hey, I recently purchased a painting and i was hoping that you
could tell me anything about it. The painting is done by a 1900's
spanish artist by the name of Juan Ferrāndiz. Ferrāndiz is known
for is paintings on plates; however, i have been unable to find out
any information regarding his paintings on canvas' rather that on
plates. Please email me back as soon as you can. Thank you for
your time. -Tyler
P.S. If it would help, i could send you a picture.

Answer
Dear Tyler, I find no listing in any dictionaries of artists for a Juan Ferrandiz. One difficulty in locating Spanish artists is that sometimes they are listed under their mother's maiden name and other times under their father's family name.
Cordially,
Dan
