  1. If you look at the signature at the lower right, it bares no resemblance to the signature at the lower right of the full http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/01/masterpiece-1130.html painting, shown by https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/fb/Rudolf_Ernst_An_Afternoon_Show.jpg. That's because this painting is actually by Léon Bonnat (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A9on_Bonnat, compare this signature to the http://www.museebonnat.bayonne.fr/images/interface/3-1.gif signature at the http://www.musee-bonnat.com/ webpage of the museum named for him).
