Looks like Kotorovsky or something like that, but I've never heard of him (if he exists! I could be wrong) so I can't give you any more information.

Dear Peter,

On top of what surface is this signature? From the photograph it appears to be on the front a gilt frame or possibly on the reverse. If the signature is on a gilt surface, it can be enhanced by placing the artwork in a dark room and illuminating the signature with a black light. Unless the signature was covered with a clear shellac, varnish etc. it should floresce and become more legible.

Dear David,

Here come a picture of the painting! And the sign was at top to left...I dare not doing some for I'm not expert and have not these essential utensils! :(

Dear Margarita,

I'm not sure to understand what you mean, but the first picture with sign was a detail picture of the painting of a Rabbi. OBS; The Painting is not new production!

Hi.  I am new to this and came upon this site while trying to research an old painting my father in law has.  It looks like oils on wood and is of a Rabbi with a very elaborate carved gilt frame.  A name that looks like Kotorovsky is in the upper left corner.  Sounds similar to yours.  Did you find out anything at all??
