Flowers - Oil painting on wood.
George Hinke was a relative on my mother’s side. This painting has always remained in the family.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Hinke was best known for his illustration art, seasonal and religious imagery; this is atypical of his work, and fairly small, both characteristics keep the value low.
