Fine Art/FRANCIS BACON
MY GRANNNY LEFT ME AN ORIGINAL OIL ON CANVAS PAINTING OF "A BLURRY MAN SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF AN EMPTY ROOM WITH A LIGHT SWITCH AND APPEARING TO UNLACE HIS SHOES". THE PAINTING IS SIGNED F.B ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT AND IN THE MANNER OF FRANCIS BACON'S WORK. NOTHING ON THE BACK OF THE PAINTING. I HAVE RESEARCHED AND CANNOT FIND BACON SIGNING ANY OF HIS WORKS AS F.B. CAN YOU ASSIST PLEASE?
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 (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.
