The style and date of this painting indicate it is from the "aesthetic movement," a late nineteenth century movement that championed pure beauty and art-for-arts sake. It emphasized the visual and sensual qualities of art and design over practical or moral ones. It is well done (in my amateur opinion), and unsigned pieces might fetch $100 USD or more if ebay is any indication.

It is a sentimental value. That means it has no real value. You could probably get $40-$50 where I live.

Can you state what the signature says and if the person is a family member? Sentimental value means so many things. If it was a famous artist that painted it for a beau, that could make it worth a lot. Or if granny painted it, then less. It helps to know some of the background.

What else are you looking to know about it?

Do you know what the person who wrote the note is taking about front picture? Was this painted over something?

So many questions! Maybe once I have a better idea what you need, I can help you! Thanks!

Members will not usually be able to provide very much information when questions have only one picture (painting) and almost no information.
How did you acquire the painting? Do you have any personal information as to age or where this painting has been - if it is truly a vintage/antique painting?
Several questions:
Size of picture?
Under glass?
Artist? may be Robert Cox (R. Cox)
Canvas?
Type of back?
Frame material?

What is needed: (same needed with your other questions):
A close-up picture of the area showing artist signature.
Picture of back.
Close up of frame - front and back.
Answers to above questions.

There are hundreds/thousands of similar pictures posted around the world.
It appears that the artist may be Robert Cox (R. Cox).
If the artist is Robert Cox then you may have a valuable painting but it may take a qualified appraiser to verify the age and value.
You can see by just these 2 sites there are a lot of R. Cox paintings listed for sale.
www.etsy.com/.../robert_cox
www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675...

For sale prices are prices a seller would like to receive for their items but only a sold item will provide value as it shows what some one was willing to pay.
You can check the sold listings on eBay to see what prices are actually being paid for similar paintings.

You can always try for more information on one of these sites but they will want more pictures and more information. When it is a painting most appraisers want to see it first hand as pictures do not tell very much about a painting.

If you provide the necessary pictures as well as information, you may be able to obtain information on Reddit as they have some very qualified members. You will need to join and Reddit is sort of difficult for beginners but ask questions if you cannot figure something out.

Note?
Where was it found? I really see very little that indicates this note is information about this painting.
Does it have anything to do with this painting or perhaps another painting. Why have this much information and not name the artist?

'Interlude' - Robert Cox did not usually name his paintings.
Does the comment 'behind front picture' mean there is a painting behind this picture?
