This painting is about 15" x 18" (image size).

The label on the frame, reads, "Charles E Cobb, 454 Boylston Street, Boston, Massachusetts ). I can not find out when this framer was in business, in Boston. That might be a clue.

There are square nails, holding the canvas to the frame.

If this is a copy, I'd love to know the original artist. Without cleaning it, I can not read a signature, because it is quite dark.

Thank you again, member, for your time and expertise,

Regards,

Jimmy N

It's a copy of Hans Holbein's portrait of Erasmus of Rotterdam.
Possibly an oleograph, since all details seem to match precisely. The white scratches also point to that.

Thank you, Vietato,

The image was so familiar. I just couldn't put it together.

You are very appreciated!

Stay safe,

Jimmy N
