Antique Italian

How do i determine if a painting is a fake?

I bought antique italian painting on ebay of a young girl signd by B. Fitz. It is an oil painting on wood with a wooden gold frame. Measures approximately 8"X11". It is really a nice looking little piece and is probably worth what I paid for it. I suspect it is not antique and I can find no information on the artist. The seller says that the info about this obscure artist can only be found in a book that is published annually and reproductions of its content are prohibited. Will only say it was pained in 1896 or 1897 and was purchased from some european estate. I say "likey story"! I think it is a nice little reproduction. Either way, I like the painting but would like to know its origin so if I want to sell it I can at least be truthful to the buyer. Any information anyone can give me would be gratefully appreciated.

The best way to have it checked for free is to take it to your nearest fine art auction house or email images to them. They have experts who will be more than happy to have a look at it and will be able to tell you in seconds. This is based on a lifetimes experience on working on the subject.
