Hello,In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to know the size and see images of the front, back (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up of the signature. Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures. ~Rarewares

This definitely not a print it is an oil painting it's probably hard for you to see it properly from the picture I sent to you .
But for sure its oil in a very old frame I do know the original is in museum
Thank you for time
I will continue to look into the painting and get someone to take a look at it physically that is
Yes the family loans the original painting to museums.There can only be one original of a painting and any other images are considered reproductions/prints, however they are produced. A giclee print on canvas is very often highlighted with paint strokes and a special varnish to make it look like a painting. Please do look at how many images appear for this piece to understand that it was and still is widely produced in many different forms. enjoyed working with you on this.

My oil painting is different if you take a closer look the items on the mantel piece are different to the original one .
I am very intrigued to do more research
I bought this oil painting at a antique auction some 28 years ago it came from an elderly ladies estate
I will continue on to see if I can discover more about this particular painting
