Fine Art/Need to identify Artist

Question
Hi!
If I sent you copy of drawing could you identify the artist for me ?

Felix

Answer
Dear Felix, Unlikely that I could identify an artist by his drawing, unless it were very individualized. There is no canvas or stretcher bars or panel to judge the time period and nationality. There is no palette (colors) to judge the school of art or influence. There is no style of brushwork to categorize.
Cordially,
Dan
