I have what appears to be a reverse glass chromolithograph or painting of a violin. The signiture is part of an address on an envelope in the picture. 24 x 34 1/2 in an Oak frame 33 X 44. It reads "Old Tar Whiskey"on the top section and "Always Pure" on the bottom section of the Oak frame. What do I have, etc. It's been hanging in my house for many years.

Harnett's "Ease"
Ted Froyland (02/11/2001)
Circa 1982 while working at the family art gallery in Castro Valley CA, I found the lost Harnett painting titled Ease. It was authenticated by Albert Franenstein of the de Young Museum and was later sent to the Kennedy Gallery in New York where I understand it was auctioned. I am curious to know of its whereabouts presently. I am not interested in purchasing, just would like to see it again. There was a wonderful story connected with finding the painting.
