Not ignoring you, just don't know. Where did you find it? HOw big? Was it framed? That might help.

There is a Royal Institute of Oil Painters, based in London, but the label doesn't seem to be them. It looks like 'Painters in O[ils]'

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_...f_Oil_Painters


You might see more of the label if you play around with colours, contrast and saturation. Try it in mono too. Sometimes different settings bring up different parts and allow you to assemble the whole.

I was thinking more geography for the "O".

There was an "Institute of Painters in Oil Colours" begun in 1883 in the UK, and also a "London Institute of Painters in Oil Colours." I don't know if that helps in this case, though. Looks like linen on panel.

These look to be earlier names of the body I mentioned. I suspect one or other is the body you are looking for. The archives are held in London by the Victoria and Albert Museum.
