Fine Art/oil painting info
I would like to find out about an oil painting by M L Bowman. It is a scene of two wooden sailing ships at sea, with one out in front of the other. The stretcher is a #26 by Bay State Stretchers Wadsworth & Howland Co Inc Boston Mass. An approx date/value would be great. I will send pics if you are interested. Thank you for your time.
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 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.
