Waterfall Oil Painting

 My painting is still in the original frame. Frame is made of plaster and has a couple of small chips in it.  The painting itself is in excellent condition, but needs cleaning.  On the back of the painting (on the frame of the painting) is a paper with the following information:  harry hoffmann - Kunstmaler     bad  ems     schillerstraBe2    telefon  2046        The frame has this written on it:  wasserfall   le/munchen.    The painting is signed Harry Hoffman 1961.  There is something else written under the artists signature but I can not read what it is

Harry Hoffman
Harry Hoffman was my grandfather. I think he was a wonderful artist and a wonder grandfather.

Found this email on a post on the net, states he is grandson, perhaps you could ask him some questions...I do not know how legit he is..sounds sincere

I have a large Harry Hoffmann painting done in 1967 by commission for my mom in Germany.  It is a monk tasting wine in the winery. Two small paintings were also purchased each of a German guy drinking beer.  the frames are also plaster.  I can't seem to find anything on this painter a either. 

Would like to find more info on this and Heinrich Faust horse painting from around the same year.  I have quite a few paintings here at my mom and dads: a Hann snow mountain scene, K Smith scenery, Nordmann scenery, and a water color by Vergl Goodnight 1984 13/500.
