      The reason no one can find any information on this artist is All the paintings were done by an artistic interiors or the art connection both are oil paining art mill that turned out thousands of original oil painings for cheap department stores , tourist sites and also export. All artist that painted there had to use an ASSUMED NAME AND COULD NOT USE THEIR OWN NAME Also if a painting sold well manny many copies were painted some with a few different variations but same scenes as these were good sellers Kind of like the bullfighter felt painting one buys on street corner in Mex as soon as one is sold a dupicate takes it place all painted as artist sits there all day paining same picture over and over again because it is a good seller. The company that sold these oil paintings does not give out any information about their artist as they could be from any third world country. once sold to stores and shops since 1970s they resell for anywhere from 10.00 to $300 depending the reseller trift or higher end shops So look as you will you will not find mr BILLY WILDER the ship captain and western oil painter. He did great oil painting however these were house decorations not great works of art. Another of these ghost oil painters that worked for these companies and no one can find any information on is G whitman you can search him too and find him to also have over 5000-8000 oil paintings most similar around thw world yet no one knows any thing about him either. I actually found one of his early works and found the artistiv interior label and certificate still attached So GOOD LUCK YOU DONT HAVE A MASTERPIECE BUT THEY ARE ENJOYABLE PIECES AND MAKE GOOD HOME DECORATIONS. HOpe this information helps some one not to pay too much for one of these there was one for sale at thrift store for 19.00 so shop around and dont belive the hype about paying $$$$ hundreds for any of these.
