Do you know the names of these three artists?

It's hard to make out their names. I like all three artworks and styles, but I can't make out their names to find their other works. Please let me know if you know!

Thanks in advance!


1. Bertrom/Bertram Pric..tanau? Maybe the other letters are something else altogether. This one has an embossed seal.

2. Ottavio... "+" or "t" followed by w....

3. Starts with a "P"?

@iGeo,
Interesting. I've no idea.

Artists and signatures are a subject all to their own. I'm an ordinary artist who has painted because I enjoy it; had a couple of galleries. I've done things in early days like writing most of my name, back when I was doing mostly etchings, to, later on, hiding JC in the grass while not liking the intrusion of a signature.

This all reminds me of the time I was part of a landscape design firm, and I and another designer, both women, decided we wanted to change our very ordinary signatures, the boss's sig being exemplary, very strong.

That was a hilarious experiment, to us, at least.

On number 1, because of the cartouche, I think we're looking for an artist painting between 1880 and 1920. I believe we're looking for an artist from Romania or maybe north or north east Germany painting in France.

Any chance you'd post photos of the art with these signitures?

Here's a good resource, though not for our artists today:

What about letting us try to find out the people who painted those?

Post some pictures of the artworks..

@iGeo,
The last signature looks like a cartoonist whose works I've seen. I'm trying to recall it now. Getting older means taking longer to access memories.

@iGeo,
Number 1 looks like Bertram Priestman (1868-1951). Look him up online and see if the style of the paintings match. Or post a pic of the whole painting so we can see Smile
