We just inherited this silk picture from my great grandmother. There are stories about this picture and it being of great value told from the family though no one knows anything about it. How would you identify a silk picture? There are no identifying symbols, names or any writing on the picture itself. It is made of silk, that is known.
Story goes that the Chicago Art Institute director saw this at my grandmothers house back in the early 60’s and wanted it immediately. She turned him down not only once but a few times. Looking for first steps to get this identified.
