Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

A Small Unsigned Painting

A Small Unsigned Painting - Stephen Scheding

Meh.  Not nearly as interesting as I'd hoped.  


Written in diary style, this is the attempted search for provenance/artist of a small painting the author found at auction.  It was twice as long as it needed to be and rambled a lot as the author speculated on styles, framers, owners, phone directories, geography or got completely distracted by the questioned provenance of a completely different painting.  


The ending was incredibly disappointing.


Die hard students of art might appreciate this a lot more, but I'd argue it could have been done better.
