Hi everyone. I've been meaning to post for this for a few days now. I found it at an antique store, along with other older oil paintings. I have not been able to locate a signature, and don't know enough to date it. I have to think it is pre-1800 with the stretcher construction, but I am guessing.
There were clearly repairs done to the painting, I see some newer staples and a possible repair to the canvas. The only clue is written on the middle stretcher in old soapstone marker the name, "Brand". Over that is, "C3". I did find a few artists with the last name Brand, dating back to the early 1700's, but I cannot be sure. Please feel free to comment on the listing. Thanks for looking!
