Art Mystery, Part 4 - Signatures and Soup Cans!
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Shelly and Brian looked confused when Gustav told them that the first name of the artist was Claude. Ms. Brush and Great-aunt Rayna looked triumphant. Their secret hope was that Claude was the artist's first name! That is exactly what they had been whispering about all day.
 
2     "Are you going to finish uncovering the signature today?" asked Shelly at last. She could hardly wait to learn who had painted her great-aunt's mystery painting. This visit to Aunt Rayna had turned out to be much more exciting than she had ever thought it would!
 
3     "Yes," said Gustav, "I will go right back to work." And he left the room.
 
4     "Children, let's go over the clues that we have so far," said Ms. Brush. "Tell me everything you have figured out about your aunt's mystery painting."
 
5     "Well, we know it is not an abstract painting. It is not a Picasso!" Shelly said.
 
6     "Our painting had flowers in it," said Brian.
 
7     "My father lived in Paris once," said Aunt Rayna, "but we don't know if that is important. The artist's first name was Claude. The artist was not a post-impressionist, either."
 
8     "Let's quickly go through a couple of other rooms. We don't have much time!" said Ms. Brush.
