Question: Attached are front and back photos of a 9-inch by 12-inch oil painting by Franz de Merlier. It bears a 1936 personal inscription to my great-grandfather, John G. Zook, publisher of a weekly Pennsylvania newspaper, the Lititz Express. Please tell me what you can about the picture, its artist and value. - C.W., Manahawkin
