Unfortunately a bit too much light on that signature (or just enough but from wrong angle). Are you or your family in/from Germany? Or de picture from Germany? Have you got any helpful background information, like where and when exactly bought it? What was the price (circa) on it when they bought?

It is not possible to see the first initial, because there's a reflection.

Thank you very much for the response. My family is from northern italy my dad is 72 and he got it from his mother whom passed away in the early 90s he said she had owned in since she was young. That is unfortunately all the history i have. Let me know if these new pictures help

One thing is about 100% sure. The painter is a holland (flamand), probably man. So or your grandmother or the painting/painter travelled far enough for ending there where is now. :-)
