Fine Art/Oil on canvas
Hi - my brother has recently bought at auction an oil on canvas of the bust of a female. My brother believes the artist to be Rosalba Carriera and thinks it might even be a self portrait. Canvas size is 14.5" wide x 17.5" high and has what appears to be a studio number - 251 - painted in the top right hand corner. Be very grateful for any comments.
It is always diffecult to say if it is exactly from the hand of Carriera or "school of Carriera". At first sight i agree with your brother that the artist is from the circle of Carriera. However I need more pictures to give a more clear answer. Please send me a few to my email firstname.lastname@example.org - I would like one of the back, front and closeups of labels.
Best Regards, Soren
