Hey everybody.... I was at an art show in Downtown Phoenix recently and saw some SUPER COOL work by a guy that was buying old art, and putting a modern spin on it. (See last picture).
I thought that re-using outdated art was a fantastic idea and knew that doing something like that would be a great addition to my home.
This weekend I was at a cool vintage shop and came across this portrait (19x24 oil on Linen) and bought it for a nominal sum. After further scrutiny realized that the quality of painting is exceptional and it's definitely old.... now i'm starting to have second thoughts about intentionally messing with it.
It's signed J. B. Davis
If I had some info on the painter it may help sway my decision so any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated.
Any thought from the peanut gallery?
