These were found in my grandparents attic one is I think a photograph in seapatone of a church/cathedral? Would love to know where its from and if it still exists? And is it an original photo that was taken. It is in its original frame. It is very large, It's so cool!

The other is a water color painting signed Picasso measures @ 30x40
I have no clue of their age or authentic ness. The church/cathedral is breathtaking you get the feeling like you've walked those streets.
Ive had them for 40 years, so I really don't know how old they are.
I am not an antique collector I just have a small collection of some unique things that surfaced again from some spring cleaning.

    Looks like the Duomo in Milano to me.

    I like Henry James' description of the Duomo: “A structure not supremely interesting, not logical, not … commandingly beautiful, but grandly curious and superbly rich. … If it had no other distinction it would still have that of impressive, immeasurable achievement … a supreme embodiment of vigorous effort.”
