  • Need help identifying my new painting please

    I picked this fantastic painting up at the flea market for $5 today! Total steal even if it isn't worth anything. I am trying to find out who painted it if possible. On the back it says W-895 or possible W-845 (it is partially blocked by the frame). There is also a stamp on the back of the canvas that says "reproduction rights reserved". I am including a photo of the painting and also the signature. This painting is approximately 36" x 36". Any help would be really appreciated! Oh, and I have already tried google images and also the different artist signature websites.
    Thanks!!!!

    Very evocative. Looks like it reads J. Kaye or J. Kane.

      Thanks John! I absolutely love it. When I look at the signature though, it looks like there is a faint E after the K. I have searched but J. Keane or I. Keane as well as other combinations and haven't found much. I found a John Keane that seems to have a slightly similar style but the signatures that I could find didn't match and apparently he always signs with the year. I looked up the 2 names you suggested and I can't match them up with what I have. Any other suggestions?

        J. Keane, now we're talking. This one is very similar:

        These two are not so much like yours, but are virtually identical to each other. Why anyone would go to the trouble of painting this multiple times, I don't know:

            And here's a different scene. This one is supposedly by Theodore J. Keane, but I don't know if that's correct. He died in 1952 and these paintings feel later than that to me, maybe 1960s-1970s.

                We have that exact painting but the signature is just slightly different. It has that same number W-895 on the canvas. Ours also has a code number 09180 U 36895 FOGGY SHIP. Let me know if you would like to see a picture of it.

                          I have a painting also but it is completely different...same signature bought from a "reputable" art gallery in Toronto. Bought 40 years ago. Can't recall the price. It's a blue scene.
