    Please can anyone give any info on Edwin Bold 1891-1900. This is my favourite item- It is oil on canvas and I am currently working on the frame, item is of English travellers taking there horses to a horse show like we have in England say Appleby. I got this item out of someone's personal collection cheaply £30 they had owned it for nearly as long as it's been about. I am of gypsy origin myself so this is the reason it is special to me (please don't judge me I am honest and hard working). The subject matter is insane for travellers gypsy horses going to the fair. I believe gypsy's with money would pay dearly to own it as you just won't find a better subject than this for them. They love horses and pay insane figures for them so I know they would like the picture. Anyway it will stay in the hallway prime place. Sad the artist had such a short career it is signed lower left and the plaque was on it already. I have tried to find out about the artist but to no avail. Please help if you can.

      1891 - 1899 ? Doesn't make any sense.
    5. lee120275 lee120275, 1 year ago
      Gillian 1891 - 1899 is probably the length of his art career. Or may just be approx time of painting

      That's just silly to say the least.

      lee120275, Beautiful. The horses look like draft horses:

      FYI, that "fl." abbreviation apparently stands for "floruit," which means flourished:

      @keramikos - thank you for setting me straight.
      @lee120275 - I sincerely apologise.
    9. keramikos, 1 year ago
      Gillian, You're welcome. :-)

      FYI, I had no idea what "fl." stood for with regard to a date range until I looked it up on the Internet.
