The Artist H PohlM Zondagh
I have a landscape oil painting painted by either H or M Pohl - we cannot distinguish properly. It's a about a river and it's banks on either side, a lot of blue and pale green hues, as well as tall grass species with plumes. The reason why we're interested is that when we looked at the back of the painting, in pen there's a price sold to: Sorry name unclear price: £6.6.
This painting has been hanging in my husband's grandmother's house for many years, it's not particuarly beautiful but we know that before 1961 the pound currency at that amount was an enormous amount of money for middle-class people. And if it was bought during the depression years, more's our confoundedness.
