Fine Art/Henry Mosler
We just purchased a framed piece of art a week ago at an estate sale. When we had brought it home and had a chance to examine it, it has the signature of H. Mosler and the year 1872 under the name. It is a portrait of two children, a girl sitting on a chair and a boy holding a kite. I can't find any information on it and was wondering if you could shed some light. Thanks!
Lisa, I will be interested to see it.
If you would like to send jpeg images to me please keep each image of a reasonable size (not too large), and send them as “attachments”, do not embed them in your email. If you are looking for identification or opinion regarding your painting best would be an image of the front (just the painting, don’t include your lovely living room or pick-up truck), the back, and remove any paper covering (90% of respondents do not send me images of the back, I can obtain nearly as much information from the back as from the front), and close-ups of the signature, details of the brush-work, and any inscriptions or labels (use the macro setting on your camera for these close-ups). You can send this information to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org and make your subject line “allexperts” so I do not bounce you as spam. It would be nice to receive feedback as I do this on my own time with no remuneration, free, no charge, nada. I do NOT research prints or artwork post-1940 (in other words if it does not look like your grandfather or great-grandfather would have owned it, don't proceed).
