When asking a question about an artwork post ALL information you know:

1) Medium: Oil, Acryllic, Pencil, Pastel, Charcoal, Etching, Litho, Engraving etc

2) Support: Paper, Canvas, Wood (natural or man-made, denote species of timber if possible), Tin, Copper, Card, Zinc, Porcelain, etc

3) Size; cm, mm or inches (denote which)

4) Provenance: i.e. where you bought the piece; oral or documented history.

5) Images: Front, Signature, Back, Labels etc. Read instructions on attaching images below


To attach an image file you need to click on the Browse button to locate the image on your computer, this is to the right of Attach files - found just below where you enter text (i.e. below this white square!). THEN you have to click Upload which is to the far right of the Browse button. If you don't click upload then the image will not upload to the forum. There is also a file size limit - so if your image exceeds the limit it will not upload - in this case you will need to either compress the jpeg file (using photoshop or practically any other imaging software - google 'compressing jpeg' for instructions) or alternatively, you can upload the image to Photobucket, Flickr etc and paste the URL (web-address) into your post.

Please do not post numerous threads on the same topic/object - any additional information and images can be added in the same thread by following up your initial post or indeed using the edit button. The members of the forum would appreciate it if you refrained from deleting your initial post (or editing it beyond all recognition) once your query has been solved for reasons twofold: firstly, these threads are invaluable research tools and when members come to reference them at a later date and the inital post has been deleted we then have no reference! And secondly, when members are busy researching your query and the thread has a number of follow-ups we often don't look back at the first message, so if it has been heavily edited with information such as 'problem solved' we're still busy researching!

This is a great forum with very knowledgeable contributors from across the globe, who will endeavour to solve your questions. If there has been no reply to your post it is more than likely still being researched so keep checking back!

Also: Make a headline to your post that is descriptive of the art piece, like "abstract oil on canvas", "19th century landscape" or "watercolor portrait", rather than "help ID artist", which doesn't tell anything!

And: descriptive text on the photos also helps speeding up search: "front", "back", "signature", etc.

Regards,
Vietato

A "locked topic" is one to which you cannot reply ; )
A "sticky" post is one that stays on top.
Both things are properties of the administrator only.

I am embarrassed to admit that I didn't go back and read your very important information before reposting. I will not forget to do it the next time mea culpa.

Yes yawngie, it still is the best forum. But for how long.... I do wish Findartinfo would get the features up to date. One still has to go through all this archaic clicking to see the images it is all about. Not only time consuming, very confusing too, since you can't remember which one you already saw, resulting in a lot of unnecessary repetition. I notice, unwillingly, that this limits my enthousiasm for this forum. And it limits chances of getting answers.
