Fine Art/Trying to identify a painting


Hello.. Happy Holidays.  I would like to see if you could help me identify who this person is in this painting and also who the painter was.  I have no signature or initals to go by.  Thanks for your help!   Courtney

Dear Courtney,

Happy Holidays to you as well. It will be impossible for me to tell you who the artist of your painting is without a signature or other markings. At best I could give you other artists of the same style. If you would like me to take a look, email clear high resolution photographs of the entire front and back, any writing on the painting or frame, and a close up of the brush strokes. You can email them to I'll see if I can give you any information on your painting.

Kind regards,

Fine Art
