I have the opportunity to buy this but the dealer is unfamiliar with who the artist is. He just told me he bought it from Japan a long time ago and couldn't remember who painted it. I don't have a clue either but I liked the painting. Any ideas?
The signature looked like A F Foster 1896 but I know it must not say that. I know the photo is poor with glare but it's the best I can offer right now, sorry. It was hard to read the signature to begin with. Hoping someone could recognize the style perhaps.
