Question
We are trying to identify the artist of a painting which has been
in our family for years.
It is approximately 14" x 18", oil on canvas, with a signature that
may or not include the last name of Leslie.
I am emailing you jpg images of the painting and the signature.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Answer
Dear Jon, This is a nice painting. It appears to be 19th century British. I do not recognize the signature. Can you send me an image of the back, the exact size of the painting, and information about any labels or stenclis on the verso ?
My email is pirround@msn.com

Cordially,
