Oil Painting of a war torn cathedral

For sale

15" by 30" oil painting on wood. Gifted to me about 9 years ago by the family of "Russ Robinson, (James Kilpatrick), (long time pianist of Frank Sinatra, gifted to him by the family of "Rock Hudson", (movie star), (James' father and Rock Hudson were cousins). I have shown the picture to a handful of galleries in New York, Pittsburgh, and Orlando, FL but haven't been able to come to any positive conclusions of origin. It does have a Picasso signature in the right hand bottom corner but we are not sure of authenticity.

I was mistaken about the canvas. The painting is actually on wood. I have attached a few more photos for review.

It seems to be a type of particle board. Particle board originated in Germany around 1887 which would indicate that the age of the painting would be from the past hundred years or so.

Dear Bob,

Thank you for the additional images and your patience.
The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil or acrylic paint on canvas with the measurements of 30 x 15 inches. The painting depicts a cathedral and is signed with the name "Picasso".
This artwork is not comparable in style and quality of the painting to the works of Pablo Picasso. Also, the signature differs strongly to the signature of Pablo Picasso. This classifies this piece as a fake and it has no value on the art market.

With kind regards,
