    Lovely. Sad. Haunting. A mystery. This is one of two Holocaust themed paintings that my pickers assistant found a few months back. I've scoured every research source I have and some I really shouldn't have! -And I can't find anything on this artist. Anyone see any painting of a similar style? Anybody out there that can translate that tag on the back of this painting? To me, it looks like a gallery tag. My last hope was Bonhams and they struck out not only with this painting but with the second one as well... Opinions, options, and advice welcome! Thanks!

      Hi from Sydney, Australia.
      The tag is the title of the print: Shapes on the Wall. The signature is Sironi and I think refers to the Italian modernist Mario Sironi (May 12, 1885 – August 13, 1961) .
      In your fourth photo of the signature you can see the array of dots indicating that this is unfortunately a print.
      Borrow a high power magnifying glass (the kind jewelers use) or a microscope and look at a color picture in a magazine. If the magnification is powerful enough, you will see microscopic colored dots in a pattern. Next, use this same magnifying glass or microscope and focus on the image you are studying. If you see the same type of array of dots in your picture you have a machine-made reproduction.

      -- Some reproductions are very well done and may have no dots to see. They can be on canvas or paper on board and even be embossed to duplicate the brush marks of an original painting. A Giclee (ghee-clay) print is a machine-made reproduction of very high quality made by an Iris digital ink jet printer. A Giclee print has extremely small pixels of color, with no perceptible dot pattern, that may equate to resolution of a digital print at 1,800 dots per inch. A Giclee print may be hand signed and may have dabs of paint applied by the artist to enable the print to be sold as an original work of art.

      Hi. So I'm new to this site and already I don't know how I ever lived without it. I'm not sure if there is a way to contact you directly... I just wanted to thank you again for your information! Hoping I can return the favor at some point!
