      I found another painting by this artist;

      https://www.catawiki.com/l/9362443-c-verkerk-20th-century-farmer-at-farm

      still hard to find any more history of this person.?.

      Here is another example:

      http://www.burchardgalleries.com/auctions/2000/dec1000/dec1000c.htm

      I quickly found at least a half dozen contemporary artists with the last name Verkerk. The way I would approach it is to find examples of as many of these artists' signatures as possible and try to eliminate the non-matches that way, and maybe find a match. You could also evaluate the styles of the various artists surnamed Vankerk for similarities but artists sometimes paint in several styles.
    23. bobby725 bobby725, 9 months ago
      Thanks kwqd, I saw that and I have looked at some of the other artists with that last name. Mine seems to match C. Verkerk the best and it is a unique signature. Also all of the C. Verkerk pictures have the same style, they are more open in the center of the picture with a lot going on on the sides. I still can`t seem to find out if this artist is a male or female or any history of them. Thanks again for all of your help!!

      I just purchased a painting signed “Verkerk” and I’m wondering if it’s the same artist. Is there a way for me to post the picture on this comment thread?
    25. Golgatha Golgatha, 5 months ago
      I wouldn't exactly call it art. It's too calculated for that. But 'decoration' might pass. In a cellar or another lesser used dark room.
    26. bobby725 bobby725, 5 months ago
      lots2Find, just click on add your item and follow the steps, you can post 4 pics.
    27. bobby725 bobby725, 5 months ago
      mr. golgatha, it is an oil on canvas, and if it`s better than anything I can do, it`s art to me!!! I would rather see this in my living room than a picasso which makes no sense to me. I don`t visit your posts and criticize your items, and I`ve noticed that you seem to have a habit of that. If you have nothing good to say, STAY OFF MY POSTS, I DON`T GIVE A RATS ASS ABOUT YOUR OPINION!!!!!!!!!!!

      Such a lovely painting and looks great on your wall. If a real place would be nice to visit.
    29. bobby725 bobby725, 5 months ago
      Thanks six-0-one for the appreciation!! I don`t know why the last comment has to be so negative, if they don`t like it, that`s their problem not mine. Thanks again!!

      Dear bobby725, I love you too ! I believe there are courses in anger management ...
    31. bobby725 bobby725, 5 months ago
      anger has nothing to do with it. if I don`t like the way someone is treating other C.W. posters I will let them know. I see how people like you start trouble then try to take the high road and make others feel small, it won`t work with me, I will not put you on a pedestal. So drop the arrogant act on my posts.
