Mystery Painting364,716
I own the painting of the oranges in the link below. This site is attempting to determine the artist. My painting has written verso, Levi Wells Prentice, unintelligible, Buffalo, NY Jun 9, 1889. I was told it´s not a Prentice. The site above says it was painted on a Winsor & Newton canvas and framed at R.C. Roberts, Swansea, Wales. None of that information is visible on my painting. The back paper is mainly torn off, but much remains glued to the stretcher. If anyone can offer any intformation as to the artist. Thank you very much.

New PostsRaphael Apollo - 19th century drawing? 1866255,750
There is a problem with the links - if you are linked to the album, please look at all the pictures of the drawing and the tex Dear All (especially Fausta): This drawing was in my family before I was born. It is a brown chalk (?) copy of Apollo from the Vatican fresco of the Parnassus. The quality of the photos is not astounding - apologies, will try to do better next week. The bottom has a text in Italian, which is hard for me to read - I would appreciate even a clear reading of the text (and if possible, a translation). Any idea of what this may be will be highly appreciated¤t=full.jpg¤t=face.jpg¤t=hand.jpg¤t=textA1.jpg¤t=textA2.jpg¤t=textA3.jpg¤t=textA4.jpg Thanks a lot Eytan PS I noticed that the date was cut in the photo: it is 2 Agosto 1866

Old charcoal drawing woman with helmet who ?304,416
Hello bonjour Has somebody an idea of the artist . Very old charcoal drawing on vergé paper with a water mark ( see jpeg4 in tranparency ) representing a woman with a helmet and a bird ( dove ? ) on it . Could be a symbol of the peace . I think of a néo classical french artist of XVIII cent like David or Delacroix but it could be older or from a different country . could be also a study for a painting it reminds me something ... surely not Picasso ! dimensions 23,5 x 30 cm . thanks in advance for yr help regards

New PostsMystery Artist - Help!!268,065
This painting was found in an attic in Connecticut in the 70´s. Oil on canvas, approx 6ft x 4.5 ft We know nothing for sure about it. I´ve had Sotheby´s, Bonham´s, and many other places and people take a look and nobody can recognize the monogram. General consensus is that it´s European (German or Eastern possibly) and late 1800´s. But at the same time some people think possibly American and also possibly Masonic. ANY help or opinions are welcomed! Even just deciphering the letters. I see either D W E or L W E
