I received a painting from my deceased grandmother. Artist name Eddowes A. Edmonds. I have attached 2 pics

Answer
Daniel,
It seems you might have a handsome portrait of some young lad who has been enrolled in a military school?  I would fathom this artwork, if original, may have been commissioned by his family or by his school. Either way, no listed artist by this name, nor does any listed artist named Edmonds fit the bill. I suggest a little more research of the family tree for anyone who may have attended a private military school.

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.
