A co-worker is moving out of her rented house in Bel-Air and moving into a condo unit on Salcedo. She bequeathed to me five, framed, watercolor paintings and a tabletop tableau of the Coronation of the Virgin Mary. I have yet to determine whether the paintings are authentic or are repros. They are old and dark and convincingly real because they are chipped in parts and one of them even has a vertical crack that may have been caused by a past attempt to fold it. Three of them are signed "Bredow", but the signatures are a far cry from Bredow's real signature.
