Hello, I am hoping someone can give me some tips or adivce on the best way to identify the artist and name of a painting. My friend was given a painting through probate. The issue is that certificate on the back is missing (you can the square the patch on the back of the where the certifcate would be. The painting has no artist signature.
All the info we have have is that it is a "Dutch oil landscape" and it is painted on copper. I belive it is an orginal becuse it purchased 30 or so years ago from an auction house in New Orleans. However, the auction house has changed ownership 4-5 times since then and they do not have the records from 1995.
Please see the links below for pictures of the painting. Any help would be much apperciated!

I am sorry that I cannot be of help. Painting conservators
avoid issues of attribution and authentication due to potential conflicts of
interest. Additionally, even those professionals who
focus on authentication would need to physically examine the work in person and
perform archival research before they could make any statements about the work
