    I've had this stored in our shed since Summer so I thought I'd bring it in and post it. I don't know much about this painting other than I really like it. It was buried in the picture stacks at our old Salvation Army in town, missing it's frame and suffering a few areas of damage. One two inch tear and a couple small punctures which will need repair at some point. It is signed Bisset 98' on the front and the back is also signed and dated with the title "Seven Women". An online search turned up a few Bisset's , but they all have the extra "t" at the end. One promising candidate is Bill Bissett. He's listed as a Canadian artist and his work looks very close to this. He is also still alive but quite old since he was born in 1939. So he could have done this if it is him. It could just be a high school art fair project too. Here's the "Ask Art" link for comparison:

    I see this framed in a nice ornate gesso frame. It's not a very standard size though at 27" x 36" and a frame like that would be quite expensive to have made. Maybe I'll find one someday. -Mike-

      Interesting Mike...I think this is a great art piece.

      I did not find anything either. Yes there are quite a few others but like you said...double T.

      Really in the shed, well, I think I was the only one, with so many Artwork,, there no room in the house for it.
      I am glad I am not alone:D
      It's like PICASSO STYLE, I really love it.

      Thanks Alan :).... yes in the shed. Suffered no ill effects even with the extreme temperatures from summer to winter. In fact the canvas is nicely tightened up now. I really need to find a frame and hang this one damaged or not. It's staying in the house
    10. Alan2310 Alan2310, 6 years ago
      Mike, may I ask you what size frame you looking for ?
    11. mikelv85 mikelv85, 6 years ago
      Sure, no problem Alan .... The stretcher on this painting measures 27 inches x 36 inches. :)
    12. mikelv85 mikelv85, 6 years ago
      Thanks eye :) Looks like you nailed it ! ....Awesome ! Yep, bitter cold Ohio. Now I should be able to find something out about this artist but, still no luck. A first name or initial sure would have been helpful when they signed it.

    15. mikelv85 mikelv85, 6 years ago
      Thanks artislove :) I think so too, just wish I could find out something about the artist. That's still a mystery .

      Well I just bought a Bisset and found this. I also found a Bisset which is very similar to what I purchased.. also found in GoodWill. Bisset painting style is in the same manner as Urbain Huchet a very famous French artist.
      My search only comes up with Jacqueline Bisset.. Which she swamps the internet. She does love Art. Any news on Bisset .. let us know
