Hi.

I recently have won a painting on eBay which was described as Edwardian & dating to the 19th/20th Century.

Does the artist seem to have a good hand? Also does the age look to be correct.

I really do not know what to make of this oil painting. From the back the work looks like to have some age, due to the darker paper on the verso. I have no opinion on the back of the paper. Possibly somebody may be able to get some additional information about this oil painting by reading the label on the verso of this oil painting.

Regards.

Anybody? This item was catalogued as 18th Century. All signs lead it to being 18th Century, as copper was a popular material of the time, right? Also the portraits of this time were prodimately painted in an oval format right? Can anybody reinforce what I am trying to state?

I was going to say, what is up with his right eye but I see in the original that one eye is bigger than the other. However it is the left eye that is bigger in the original. Still the bigger one in yours is way too big.
