    That's not the same artist as Willem George Frederick Jansen. Not the same signature, either.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Ugh! Good catch Charlie...Plus I don't think the subject matter matches anyway.

    I think it looks American. I still think it might be a W.G.F. though?

    Interesting it could be an insular G used in Great Britain and Ireland?

    Thanks for all the effort. The item comes from an estate and the owners were military people and were in Europe a lot from WWII years until the 60s.

    I can't help with the artist but the scene was a popular one to paint. Maybe still is... Garmisch-Partenkirchen

    Yours gives me an art deco vibe. 1930's or 40's? Possible a purchase from a street artist?
