Fine Art/antique oil painting
Hi-I have aquired an seascape oil painting on canvas and I would like to have an idea how and where to find out who painted it. It seems to resemble those painted in the Hudson River School. The frame is also very fine and in good condition. The size is approx. 24x36. I will attempt to attach photos. There is no writing of anykind on the painting.
Dear J. Straub,
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 imbed 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, 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.
