Yea, I thought if I could see the signature I might be able to read it but I can't. I suspect it was probably a hobbyist painter that is unknown. It's clearly marked Hamburg 1926 so you know it was a German painter. I found a list of German Painters listed in alphabetical order and couldn't find the name there. There was only three that had a first name starting with F and last name starting with G and all of them died before 1926.

Hi xakzop, could it be Martin Franz Fräncis - Glüsing?

New adventures.

I think Arduy nailed the artist. The signature matches known signatures.

Difficult to tell from the pictures but the painting may need to be cleaned.

I'm the owner. I got the painting cheap (40 bucks). And was just wondering if I got something of value or not. I liked the painting, too. But its BIG so I don't really have anywhere to hang it quite yet.
Just not sure if I'm sitting on something valuable and mistreating it. Cause at the current time its just collecting dust in the corner of my room for the last few months.

I think you would have to show it to a professional appraiser to get a value. If you google other paintings the value varies from $300.00 to $3000.00

$40 is a steal for that IMO!
