Current Mystery Painting


From time to time, we come across paintings that lack clear authorship. These may be unsigned or indistinctly signed, or, perhaps, bear an unfamiliar monogram. We call these our Mystery Paintings. While great masterpieces do wander the world waiting to be discovered, there are also many lesser works that deserve accurate attribution.

Below is one of our current challenges.


This unsigned, Post-Impressionist nude dates to circa 1910. The curtain material on the left seems to show the influence of the Vienna Secession. Perhaps you recognize the model from another work of art? Perhaps you recognize the style? We will pay a reward to the first person who can identify the artist.
