Fine Art/Identification of old oil painting
Any information at all on this painting will be much appreciated. I bought it at a thrift store about two years ago. It appears to be unsigned but the surface has ‘dry’ cracks which indicate it may be quite old. The size is roughly 16” X 20”. I have been unable to locate any information on it whatsoever. So, it simply makes a nice conversation piece on our living room wall.
Randy, It appears to be a reproduction, but to be sure please follow the instructions below.
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 email@example.com 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.
