Re: Can you read this OT?

John K Jordan
Does the paint stroke flow up, over, and swirl down to form the leg of the "K"? Hard to be sure in 2D. Could the first letter of last name be a "V"?

There is a german artist Hermann Kern but he seems to have specialized in portraits.

Do you have a clue as to the age?
Origin?
Any way to find out more based on how or where you acquired it?

A newspaper antiques columnist Joe Rosson works from photos to identify and evaluate things that interest him. May be worth a try.
