I got this piece free on cl.because of the size that I could use it for a project. 50in x 50in frame canvas painting. But now I may just keep it and hang it.. But I'm not exactly sure what it suppose to be, does anyone know the Name of this painting? and any better of use for this painting? Thanks, Ann

    If it were me, I would keep it. I believe it's a child touching the face of their mother. Renaissance period but can't for the life of me name it. If you have a child, it would be sweet in their room.

    Is there a signature?

      Doubt it - there would be some sort of 'signature' / or provenance - and to my mind, that image looks so - Renaissance - beautiful - and NOT an American painter. The image is far too 'religious' . AND SO NOTTTT an American artiste/painter. Unless the artist was copying an image - from the Sistine Chapel - in Roma????

    Is it a real painting or a print? If it’s a real painting don’t touch it till you know what you have. In either case it’s beautiful and I would hang it proudly.

    Search the artist Richard Franklin. I tried to post links, but it would not accept them. On Etsy, one "giggle" print - I never heard of such - is listed at $299. A framed print elsewhere is listed for $89. You will find other sites that carry his prints. This one is titled "To Go Beyond."

    Could this 'particular' image, be part of the Sistine Chapel, in Roma, Italia.? Where did u get the image from?????

    Hi Ann - the painting is by Richard Franklin. If you google his name you can find more of his work. It's stunning!

    To Go Beyond is the name of the painting. It has been reproduced many times I think Kirklands has one. However if it is an old painting not a reproduction it could be worth money.
