The Hunt Breakfast aka  
Hi my name is donald  
I have a Frank Moss Bennett PAINTING Called The Hunt Breakfast aka ďLetís Hunt Chickens and it is in old vintage condition the size is  31x21 3/4 without frame the frame looks to be very old and antique trying to find some more info on it  or sell it thanks

Answer
Consult DuMouchelles in Detroit.  

This is a little larger picture than anything from this artist that has been at auction in the past decade, so it would be a good idea to have a pro give you an opinion as to its veracity.  It could be just the .jpg file, but I'd guess this needs a good cleaning.  

As you know, FM Bennett can bring five figures at auction for his better works...but generally at auctions in London, UK.  You should snap a few more photos and send them across the pond...see if you garner any interest.  Meanwhile, have anyone local take a look at the oil.  Perhaps under black u/v light to authenticate its age and authenticity.  See what the auctioneers say.

Expertise

American Fine Art Paintings.
Oils, Watercolors, Sketches. Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century. Hudson River School, Pennsylvania Academy, Cape Ann artists, Ash Can, Woodstock, Florida Indian River, American Impressionists, etc. I can provide some background about artists and perhaps a rough appraisal or guidance towards obtaining a value. I am acquainted with many of the best American art dealers and auction houses. Original works only, I do not follow the print market. I do NOT field questions about prints.

Important to know
I am not expert in European art. I encourage you to send questions on European artists to other experts on this service. NO PRINTS:I encourage you to seek help on prints elsewhere. Two sites come to mind: www.artoftheprint.com and www.philaprintshop.com

Experience

I have been collecting original American Fine Art for over 20 years. I have curated art shows, and I have served as a dealer, providing appraisals and guidance for the last 8 years.
