Question
Harrison Fisher
Harrison Fisher  
I have a watercolor painting, signed by Harrison Fisher dated 1900.
My problem is it is also signed ( not in photo shot ) A J Cooper 1913. Coopers signature has been signed in the same color paint as in the art work.Also I have a second painting framed and presented the same way although a different subject and that has a signature that reads " A J Cooper after Harrison Fisher " What have I got ??? and do you know who AJ Cooper is as I have been unable to find anything on him.
Any help would be appreciated.
Many thanks Carole

Answer
Harrison Fisher became nationally known for his illustrations of beautiful women, known as the Harrison Fisher Girls. His illustrations appeared frequently in "Saturday Evening Post", "Scribner's", "Life", and "Cosmopolitan".

Anthony J. Cooper is an artist that lived until 1992, so I suspect he was doing an interpretation of Fisher's work? In some cases, an artists works are engraved or etched by another artist.

I have not studies these artists works, so I am giving you my best guess. I'd have to do some research, and that takes time.

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
