    My name is Jeanette and I’m here to see if someone can help solve the mystery of a painting that was my great grandfather’s. It’s oil on wood panel with a wax seal on the back. It hung in my ggd’s dining room in Brooklyn NY since I was a baby in the late 60’s, and my late mother had remembered it from her childhood as well. I was told he bought all his interesting furnishings from a man selling everything he owned. With that, the true history of the painting is lost. There is no signature but there is a wax seal on the back. I’m enclosing pics of both. Any info as to where I may be able to find out more or how I can research the seal would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

    Welcome to the Forum, Jeanette! :)

    You should post this in the Art Forum, also Check Full Size for Images. :)
    This is just for introducing yourself. Not a big deal, you will be more likely to get the right people looking at it in Art.
