I have done some investigation on the artist, H. Tirolf. The paintings that are being sold on ebay are from the United States and United Kingdom/England. There was also a painting by H. Tirolf in Australia that was listed a while back. The signature on each painting seems to be exactly the same, with same style of painting. I believe the two artists that are being confused are Haim or Heim Tirolf and Hans Tirol.
The signatures on each of the paintings seem to be uniquely underlined with a large capital F that flows beneath the line.
I would like to learn more about H. Tirolf's biography. Does anyone know where he came from in Amsterdam, an exact location? Where did he study in Switzerland and where was his work exhibited in Europe? Who was his father?
These paintings are in England and Austrailia, I believe they are real and by H. Tirolf.
Looking forward to hearing from you. Dev

I have had it said to me that this H Tirolf that people are trying to find out about is only a street artist. I am not sure I believe that. I have one of his paintings and it is surely very well done. The confusing thing I find is that when there is a picture of his to be seen it is from the same area only at different angles leading to suggest that perhaps he is only a street painter. I have bought the one sold in USA on ebay. It will be interesting to see the two pictures together. I am sceptical about the painting sold be jamescaper. The name itself cunjures up so must mistrust to be believable. This artist was supposed to have been born in 1933 so theorectically he could still be alive. If he is I wish he would come forward and let people know if he is only a street painter or a serious artist.
