  1. Ms. Gilbert,
    I bought a small oil painting off EBAY of a boy bent over with his hands on his knees that was attributed to Maxfield Parrish (signed with the initials MP, so it is either his or an impersonator’s). The seller also sold a pen and ink “Pickle Man” painting attributed to him also from the same consignor. I am thinking of trying to authenticate it, and would like to know how to go about it.
    Thank you very much,
    John Fritz
