I have an oil painting signed by Joseph Stanek, Chicago 1906. It was a wedding gift to my parents in 1938. He supposedly was a distant cousin of my father, Arthur L. Fiala (Feally).His father was Charles Fiala, mother, Agnes Hubbard. Any info on Joseph Stanek, artist? Our address is Prairie du Chien, Wis.
