Wow, this is great info Sue and I.Nagi. Thank you so much.
Can anyone else chime in as to its authenticity? Do people agree with Sue or is there a chance this is authentic?
Looking at the painting, I does not appear to be gold leaf. It looks like paint to me. And the squares are one solid piece underneath, there isn’t a break between any of the squares. I honestly wouldn’t know what gold leaf feels like but I think I could tell, and this doesn’t appear to be gold. It just seems like paint.
With the help of I.Nagi, I was able to find a similar painting online at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I will attach the link to the thread.
Assuming this is a reproduction or even a “decrotive piece”, does anyone know a ballpark value?
