I’m trying to research this painting that depicts a landing of Europeans into the new world. I have attached a closeup of the signature. Thanks much.

  1. Hi, the signature reads “Aivazovsky” for Ivan Aivazovsky. But to be honest with you I’m not convinced that neither the painting nor the signature is his.

  2. Check out the signature under UV light, it should reveal itself.
    It wasn’t too many times I got paintings with added signatures, but on those few occasions I’ve confirmed such, I simply carefully removed signatures along with cleaning the painting overall and sold the paintings as unsigned. It’s a decent period painting in its own right you’ve got, so it’s still a sellable item.
