Fine Art/oil paintings


I have just purchased two oilpaintings. One is of a scene that seems to be in Paris. It is a head on view of a road, with stores. Central is a tall lamppost, with  buildings, a steeple and people(you cannot make out faces or clothing), the painting says W.Kant. It looks to be set in older times, I do have many detailed pictures. It is aprox 3ft by 2ft. Beautiful painting. The second is of a clown, with an umbrella. This is aprox 2.5ft by 2ft. the signature is vkenteroso again i have great pictures. I have no idea how to find out about these paintings and i am so curious as i fell in love with them straight away. Any info or if you could point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time

Dear Sarah,
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 imbed 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, 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 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.
