Hello Forum,

I am seeking your help to read the signature on this watercolor painting on behalf of a friend.

The painting is a study of Virgin Mary. Size 22 x 14 inches approx the, watercolor on card, painting is signed with initials middle right edge: M?? (I think other letters are P and G but not sure) and then bottom right corner a signature in full where I think I can read the first name "Marina" but then ... I am completely lost afterwards ....... Dated 1927.

Can someone figure out who the artist was please ...??

Thank you very much.
Cyril.

Your painting is signed Marina Romanoff Galitzine. The princess Marina Petrovna of Russia signed Romanoff and not Romanova her paintings.

The paintings of this artist are rare.
Here is a page of autographs with her name in the same shape :
