I need help identifying a painting.
I purchased this at a lard sale, it's old but I can't identify who is in the painting...It looks to be a movie star... maybe Lana Turner, Betty Davis..?? Your thoughts.

It looks like it could be Vivien Leigh. Though it may not be an actress at all. What makes you think that it is?

The hair and clothing looks like, maybe, the forties?
During the era of pin-up girls during WWII.

Just a thought.

Hi there,

Im not an expert by any means but in the 40's Barbara Stanwyk was around the highest paid actress in hollywood and many people wanted to paint her. It could be her, if anyone. Start there.

Barbara Stanwyk

that was funny, can't believe no one else mentioned, anyway like the signature it brings some scriptures to mind that kinda have an internet feelish to me-

Luke-
On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything.

Matthew-
“But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their companions

These are mass produced stencil/airbrush prints. This company is known for these. Here's a link to an example of others. They encompass a lot of different styles. Google on Turner C Prints, to find some more info.
