What does this mean?

Hello Marlene,

I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal,

Considering the photographs, overall pattern, qualityand the signature, I concluded that this is a Photograph of Famous Russian Writer and Politician Maxim Gorky by the Famous Photograph Artist Herman Mishkin. The photograph was taken in 1906, in New York. As this was the only visit of Maxim Gorky to New York. He visited New York City at the invitation of Mark Twain and other writers. An invitation to the White House by President Theodore Roosevelt was withdrawn after the New York World reported that the woman accompanying Gorky was not his wife. The Photograph is also signed by Maxim Gorky, and it is his signature on the bottom. If piece is not a reprint or lithograph, an original picture of this sort is highly desirable and collectable. The piece appears to be in good condition with a more contemporary frame.

Dimensions: 12 Inches by 10 1/4 Inches

Hi, I was wondering how you saw the signature of Maxim Gorky.

Dear Marlene,

The signature is Gorky's documented signature which he used before 1922. Thank you.
