    I have had a painting in the family for about 50 years. Was wondering if anyone has ever seen any art printed on a canvas like this or would have any input.

    Thanks!

    There was a painter by the name of Karl (or Carl) Probst who died in 1924. If he was the artist, the image in the 3rd photo would have been applied long after his death. I think you would get more information by contacting an art museum where they will have the expertise to research it.

    Lovely painting. I'm sure it has quite a history. I haven't seen anything quite like it but I'm all but certain it was a war prize for a German soldier. And was returned to tour family after the war. Am I correct?

    If it has the Third Reich's eagle on the back I would say it was "officially" acquired and cataloged. A war prize for the allied soldier that snagged it. I believe Carl Probst and Karl Probst as Carl signed his paintings C Probst and the year whereas this one is totally different. Interesting.

    Bonjour
    Je pense que ce peut être cette personne sur la photo ci-jointe.
    Pour vérifier s'il a peint pendant sa retraite du travail?
    Il a simplement peint un sac de jute sur une toile pour transporter la nourriture allemande pendant la deuxième guerre mondiale (il y a deux bandes verticales typiques de chaque côté de l'aigle). Aucun doute de récupération après la guerre. S'il l'a peint en 1946, il devait avoir 63 ans (un passe-temps). L'aigle a été repeint par rapport à l'original car il est de bonne qualité. J'espère que ceci est une piste pour vos recherches.

    Sorry, my translator translates to french
    Hello
    I think it may be this person in attached photo.
    To check if he painted during his retirement from work?
    He simply painted on canvas from a jute bag for the transport of German food during ww2 (there are two typical vertical stripes on each side of the eagle). No doubt of recovery after the war. If he painted it in 1946, he must have been 63 (a hobby). The eagle has been repainted over the original because it is of good quality. I hope this is a track for your research.

    Karl Probst (October 20, 1883 - August 25, 1963) was an independent American engineer and pioneer of the automobile, to whom the design of the first prototype of the "jeep" of the Second World War was conceived in 1940. He was born in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, to Charles and Eva (Knight) Probst. He studied engineering at Ohio State University and graduated in 1906.
    Probst was recruited by the American Bantam Car Company in 1940 to help him win a contract to provide the US military with a light reconnaissance vehicle that can transport troops and equipment over rough terrain. Probst drafted the Jeep in two days, starting June 17, 1940. Bantam's first hand-made prototype was completed and operational until September 21, 1940. It simply respected the 49-day delay and was delivered to the quartermaster corps of the Army to be tested. at Camp Holabird, MD.
