I recently acquired at auction, an oil on canvas painting dated 1942. Signed illegibly.

The stretched canvas was 20 x 24 and had some old repairs. The painting came out of a NYC estate of, I'm told, a sophisticated collector.

I like the painting very much. I had it cleaned, re-lined and framed.

Please see the attached photos of the painting and the signature. Any information you could share would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the info. I see similarities with the work of Hefner. I've written to the art department at Western Michigan University[ where Hefner had a long career to see if they can verify.quote]Originally posted by suede
