    还是 got some meanings in Chinese, it could be Still, could be Had better, could be Or, here it gets you the feeling Surprise unexpected.

    It means, I really don't know you are a experienced painter, it surprised me.

    it's not 还是, it's 还 and 是, two words

    我 真 不 知道 您 还 是 一位 老 画家。 = I really didn't know you are an experienced artist.
