    Hi Everyone.

    I am needing some help on these two Oil Painting portraits I found today at an estate sale.
    Here is what I know.
    These are actual Oil paintings
    Two brush hairs still stuck in Paint
    Both have uneven brush overlaps to edges
    Both measure about 30cm x 41cm

    First Painting Pink Dress
    Portrait of Marie Josephine of Savoy
    Artist: Jean-Baptiste Andre Gautier d Agoty
    Pointing to her husband
    Portrait of her father

    Second Painting Blue Dress
    Portrait of Marie Therese of Savoy
    Artist: also Jean Baptiste
    Includes her mother Marie Antoinette Ferdinanda of Sardinia
    Bust of her husband Count of Artois
    Who later became King Charles X of France

    Now... I have taken both of these out of their frames and they both have brush stroked edges.. not straight lines
    Natural age to paintings and back shows centuries of real age

    I saw online that these paintings were at one time at Versailles but now when I go to the collection of paintings there I do not find them at all.

    Any clue? Are these paintings EXACT reproductions or could they possibly be the originals? I'm stumped.
