Framed Oil Painting of a Woman and Children by Brandt - This
painting depicts a woman with two children, the younger of which
is still an infant. Based on the decoration of the room and the

through which we can see a sunny day. The bottom left of the
painting is signed “Brandt” with the initial ahead being either an
“L” or a “T”. The painting is housed in a gold 30 inch by 34 1/4 inch
painted wooden frame with decorative carving in the corners. The
