    Hi
    lundy
    Just wondering it's etching or some kind of drawing.
    You could bring this to some conservator on art research, this look like an amazing find.
    I love it.

    When I visited the DaVinci exhibit...I saw quite a few of His little Drawings that seem similar to this one.......some were in red, and blue......brown...... This seems on par skill-wise, to DaVincis'...I may of meant "Renoir" in my earlier comment. Nice find Lundy!
  7. lundy lundy, 11 days ago
    well thank you , ill do some more looking into , I don't know who sighed it with the R TY AGAIN
  8. antiquerose antiquerose, 11 days ago

  9. Jewels Jewels, 11 days ago
    Looks like a high quality artist...
  10. Alan2310 Alan2310, 11 days ago
    Pretty good Weirdpuckett ,this could be very possible.
    But I will keep going to a consertor on art to get good expertise on this.
    Wish you the best, we never know, for buck spend, million possible.

    ...the R as you call it -- looks like it could be a Double R -- or even a mixture of letters like " D I R " all signed on top of/besides each other
  12. Jewels Jewels, 11 days ago
    Where did you get this L? Maybe have an expert look...
  13. Alan2310 Alan2310, 11 days ago
    Yes antiquerose I see that to, remind the regency crest double r slightly surpurpose on top earchother
  14. Weirdpuckett Weirdpuckett, 11 days ago
    Its a good thing that it has markings on it! You should have an answer soon I suspect! The paper it will help age it as well....they cold pressed it...and the paper , if it is "acid-free" wouldn't "yellow" over time like acidic paper so...that could at least help to age it I suppose-that is, if you have difficulty in Identifying the Artist.Good Luck! Can't wait to find out!:)
  15. Weirdpuckett Weirdpuckett, 11 days ago
    I think some "paper" was animal skin or something like that also...I'm not qualified at all ....just yammering from excitement!
  16. Weirdpuckett Weirdpuckett, 11 days ago
    Oh....thanks Mr Alan!:)
  17. Alan2310 Alan2310, 11 days ago
    Weirdpuckett,Yes they called vellum

    It's not the seal of an archive, Strathmore is the brand of the drawing paper: http://www.strathmoreartist.com/about.html

  43. surfdub66, 10 days ago
    Theres a website - google "artist signatures in monogramme " there in the letter R is a very similar mark , its a log in site so you'll poss have to register to get the artist name ..

  46. antiquerose antiquerose, 9 days ago
    Looks like a "Matronly Peasant Woman in a Bonnet", or a "Pioneer Women in a Bonnet", or a "Colonial Women in a Bonnet" to me

    Not sure IF these sites will help or not:
