Hello. First of all, I hope that all of you are ok in this corona virus situation.

I am not able to identify this painter. Does anyone of you know anything or can point me to a direction where I can do a little bit of research?

Seems to me interesting how the C T of the signature resemble the communist symbol inverted. Do you think it can be a coincidence?

Thanks as always,

Montxo

Can't find this Romanenko. The back looks older than the front. It contains German annotations (Schaunter? Rysisches?) and the year 1842. So there may be an other painting underneath, if so probably a German portrait, which was damaged, then restored by a Russian soldier Romanenko and painted over.

I think the german annotation on the back is "bekannter rusi(s)ischer Maler 1842" (known russian painter 1842).

Hi Arb,

I have checked it and it seems that it is written in german "russian hunter" and the date 1842. I was wondering if some german got it, saw the signature, and thought that it might be from the XIXth century since, as you say, the back seems to be older. But, then again, it surprises me that the C T resemble the hammer and the sickle and that is why I thought it could be from 1942.

Thanks a lot again for helping me out searching for the painter.

Hi Adrian,

I have attached new pictures with more detail. I just know some words in german, that is why I assumed that schaunter (that is why I think it says) meant "hunter" just because to me they sound similar. One thing that I have found interesting is that the "u" for r"u"ssischer is written in cyrillic. #1043;#1059;sische#1043;?

well, Schaunter or Schanntev really makes no sense, unless it is a name. "Maler" (the last word "painter") is pretty much 100% clear to read. And in this context "bekannter" (known) makes more sense. For the "u" I would say thats just the way he/she writes the u.

Regards, Ad

I agree with Adrian a 100%. It says 'bekannter rusischer Maler 1842'. Despite the spelling mistake (should be 'russischer' with double s) meaning: well known Russian painter.
