Old charcoal drawing woman with helmet who ?304,476
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!!268,225
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

HELP - OIL PORTRAIT PAINTING - SIGNED & DATED 1685343,303
Hello, I have just purchased an oil on canvas painting, signed & dated 1685. Most the item I buy I just sell on, with damage, but I feel restoration may do this oil painting justice... I do not know if this is a genuine 17th C Century oil painting or not, although I know it has some definitive age. I firstly need to verify it´s age and the artist, if anybody has any opinions on this please tell me... Also, I need to know if it is worth restoring, I would think a bit of over painting would be a nice touch, and maybe a light clean, if I was required to seek somebody to over paint this, what would be a fair price to pay? All opinions and help would be very much appreciated. - Antique_Fine_Art - Bargains To Be Had eBay Shop : http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/antique_fine_art/
