    I don't know a single thing about paintings. This is on a door in a Massachusetts house built in 1928. Could it be an original painting from the '20s? Trying to get any information on it. If anyone knows or could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks

    It could be a panel from a three panel screen. The painting looks as though it is part of a larger picture. Screens were often painted in such styles on canvas and mounted to a wooden frame/s. It is done in a pastoral style that references earlier european paintings as well as tapestries. If you have an auction house or antique dealer/s in your area, I would have them come to take a look. Given the state in which you live, I imagine that there are plenty of antique dealers to consult.
