Current Mystery Painting


From time to time, we find paintings that lack clear authorship. They may be unsigned or indistinctly signed or, perhaps, bear an unfamiliar monogram. We call these our Mystery Paintings. Not all orphan works are masterpieces- although many masterpieces do wander the world awaiting recognition. Below is one of our current challenges.


This unsigned, Post-Impressionist nude dates to circa 1910. The curtain material on the left appears to show the influence of the Vienna Secession. Perhaps you recognize the model? Perhaps you recognize the style? We will pay a reward to the first person who can definitively identify the artist. Please click through to view a higher resolution image.
