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.
