    Landscape, Oil, Maybe Barbizon ??, on Devoe Academy board.

    Found this painting in my parents basement. It's not in the best of shape but it still has the original frame. Oil on F.W. Devoe Academy Board label on back. There is some penciling on back but I couldn't make it out. It seems to be a Barbizon style landscape. ?? I don't know what to think of it. I don't see a a signature. Any thoughts?

    You know sometimes artists didnt sign paintings when they 1st started but yours looks kinda familiar but i cant place it. There are many artists its hard to tell. Did your parents buy it?

    Most likely my parents picked it up at a yard sale or something. With seven kids, they didn't part with a spare nickel. They lived in IL. My dad passed over 25 years ago and it's been hanging in a corner of the basement. I've been searching for similar art but to no avail. Someday soon, I'll put it under my microscope to see if I can decipher some to the writing or find an obsure signature. Thanks for your thoughts. N.

    Nice painting, noted art expert author of many books and weekly art columns can tell you exactly everything you want to know with a couple of good digital photo. I think his online appraisals last time I got one was $50 he will give you artist, style, value etc. and he is a top figure in the art world. His web site is artbusiness.com and you could get your way around from there. Good Luck!!!

    The Devoe logo on the back of the painting could not have been used before 1892.
