Hello everyone, I hope some of you may be able to assist me. I am considering buying a painting to possibly sell on and was just trying to get your views in regards to age, possible origins or a contender for who may have painted it. It looks to be very old, possibly 18th century, or before. The detail is superb, although it has a few paint losses and a couple of tiny holes. It is approx 30" wide framed.

Your views would be greatly welcomed.

Thanks in advance for any help given.

Best wishes,
zenZen

It's a copy of Frederick Newenham's "The Protector dictating the Letter to the Duke of Savoy to stop the Persecuction of the Protestants in Piedmont". It shows Oliver Cromwell dictating a letter to Milton. Mid 19th century.

The original, which is 3 metres across is in Stockport: ArtUK only shows a detail for some reason:
