I have this small painting (oil on wood) in my possession
It is signed  bonnard and I  wonder  if  it could be painted by Pierre Bonnard

Thank you for your comment . I can agree with it.
Though the painting seem very old when you look at the wood it is painted on.
When you look at it it almost looks like a panel of door of a cupboard.

I dont know since when there are reproductions sold of this painting.

It s the second image.   http://imageshack.us/f/213/0000084q.jpg/

I m dutch so my English is not perfect.
Some time ago a bought a painting on wood. It seems to be a copy of A Pompeian Lady by John William Godward.
But it puzzles me, why it is not an exact copy.
On the left side there is a part missing and on the right side there is an extra part, as if the image has ben moved a bit to the left side.
I wonder if anyone can tell my why this happens to be so.
