Good afternoon,

What a result, whatever you do don't remove the paper on the back. Take it to a dealer for valuation, they will want to see that as it is in situ. Especially if it's an original, it looks to me like a date.

well well well, lovely painting - what a surprise for you.   uhm  is the 3/11 on the back the fact its one of 11 prints?? 

I dont know, but I wish you all the best.  It is an absolutely lovely pic, the sails of the boat at the front really lovely.

ENJOY it  even if its worth 2d

Thanks for all your very friendly comments.

It all began last Tuesday when our local U3A Art Appreciation Group had a session entitled Venice. It was fascinating with all the usual famous artists but also some lesser known more modern artists.

I went home thinking that I had a painting of Venice somewhere in the house and the rest is history. Wait till I tell them next session about my little discovery. It's "Gothic" next time. Now have I got anything in the attic that could possibly be...........  ::)

Thanks to you all.

Just to draw this thread to a close,  we did remove the brown paper and found the following marks which confirmed it as a print. There are also two "litho prints" on ebay with the same marks and, strangely, with the same frame.

I am still enjoying the picture especially as the glass has been cleaned! ;)

Yes, Deb, when I received your message just for a minute I did think I was going to be rich but I couldn't have withstood the fame and notoriety. ::)

Doesn't it just prove that people on this site, working together, can do and find ( almost) anything and anyone? (Just wish I could find a way through my brick walls, all three of them).
You will have a lovely tale to tell at your U3A group, let us all know what the response was, won't you?
