I was wondering if anyone knew or recognized this artist's signature. Looking to find a little bit of history on this.
This may be the artist name but it seems to be a 'play' on a sort of famous artist's name - michelletaube.com/
However, this is probably just an unknown artist trying to make their mark in the art world so it could be an older painting or could be recent - difficult to tell unless you can find more information about the artist.
I only found the same type of painting that was sold in 2020 for $2.
You may be able to find more information if you ask about it on the Reddit site:
I found this painting with perhaps an evolved signature (but the way the year is painted looks very close) attributed to M. Taumbe. That and the beautiful use of similar color might be clues someone else can build on. Nice painting! www.auctionninja.com/
My husband and I got a painting from Matewere Taumbe In Cape Town, South Africa. Hes from Malawi, and his whole family paints. At least thats the story he told. Love our painting regardless if he truthfully pained it or not.
