Just acquired an oil painting signed in the lower right corner by H.TIROLFF, printed and in capitals. Similar to landscapes previously described, with a stream through a forest, no boat. However, on the back there is a copy of a card about the artist. Titled 'Hein Tirolf'. The card reads...
"Artist born 1920 in Amsterdam. His father was already well known in the Dutch Art Galleries, but the son preferred to work for an international public. He studied in Basel, Switzerland and concentrated on the Schwarzvald forestry nearby. He also spent some years in Paris before he came back to Holland."
The frame has staples in back, but there is also stamped into the frame
who apparently framed it. This painting had been in my parents house since moving there in 1972. It was probably a housewarming gift. Not sure, but it was always there and now it is in my house. Is the Grumbacher stamp significant? Not really worried about value, as it is a very nice painting and I plan on keeping it, but it would be nice to know if the artist is highly thought of in the art community.
