| I feel that this is a 19th century fine artist. The image size is 27" x 32" (approximately).
There is a sticker (upper reverse), which reads, "The Apothecary, by E. Hinck-mann". Looking up, "Hinck-mann", I find no artist who comes close to that name. On a hunch, because there is a dot between the two last names, I searched the interet for the last name, "Mann".
I found an Edward Mann, whose style is peculiarly similar. The shadings and highlights on glassware and jugs were spot on. I believe this artist could be Edward Mann.
Then, I discovered the signature (center right). It seems to read, H. McKinney???
Please see my photographs, to see if you might be able to help me.
This is a fine painting. The label on the back, could be a guess, or maybe there is an, "E. HINCKMANN". Edward Mann fits, as far as style (interiors), but, I'm confused with the actual signature. If you'll notice, there is writing slightly to the left and above the signature.
Thank you, for any help you might be able to give me. I would be so appreciative, for even the slightest bit of help.
