I have received a very odd painting today from my 82

Customer Question

Hello i have received a very odd painting today from my 82 year old nana. I say odd because the frame is like a wool material pulled around a piece of hard board. Also the art its self is of a castle next to the sea, maybe a port of some sort with ships in the docs. It has a horse and cattle on the painting. But its orange and black like a silouhette. Very pretty. However i cant make out the signature fully. It starts with gaso then fades. It says it was made in sweden and has some strange stamp on the back like crowns. Does the beginning of the artists name ring any bells at all? Its mainly for insurance purposes just incase. Thanks in advance.
