I have been given a F Robson painting, it looks as though its an etching? Its black and white/brown no colour. In the bottom left corner it says Schescgate, Colchester? I just wondered if anyone knew anything about it or whether its actually worth anything??

Hi Deborah,
welcome to the Art Forum.
We need more info. And correct info.
You write: "Schescgate, Colchester".
Is it perhaps "Scheregate, Colchester"?
What is shown on your "painting"?
A building? A person? A landscape?
What is its size?
Does it look like the attached digipic?

There's a website devoted to Featherstone Robson

I've got one of those prints (mine is of Newcastle). I thought it was an etching when I first bought it, but I'm not so sure now. There's something about the quality of line that's not quite right. My personal theory is that it's a photogravure done from a drawing, but with the plate quite heavily reworked by hand.

Nevertheless, they are often sold as etchings.
