Things to know before you start oil painting
Q I am hoping your staff can give me some information on a painting I recently purchased at a sale. There is no signature on the painting itself, however there is a name on the side of the painting, as you can see by the enclosed photo. The painting itself is in great shape and I believe done by a good artist. I am not sure of the age of the painting.
The signature may be concealed behind the work, on the back of the canvas, or the back of the mounting for a photograph. For some conceptual work, a signature comes in the form of a certificate of authenticity. Think about what kind of signature is right for your work. If you are confused, consult a contemporary art curator, professor, or historian.
