Current Mystery Painting

 

From time to time, we come across paintings that lack clear attribution to an artist and even our best efforts at research fail to establish authorship. We call these our Mystery Paintings. Not all these orphan works are masterpieces, although many lost masterpieces do wander the world waiting to be recognized. There are also many perfectly respectable lesser works that deserve to be accurately attributed.

 

Below is one of our current challenges. Perhaps you know the signature. Perhaps you recognize the style. We will pay a reward to anyone who can identify the artist.

 

We have now identified this artist as Isami Adachi (Japanese-American, 20th century). We will post a new Mystery Painting soon.
