Readers of this site regularly send me pictures of works of art, usually a painting, with a question. Recently I was sent a picture of this work and asked if I knew who the artist is and who the man.
18,5 x 13 cm, Private collection, Netherlands
The artist I would not know. Maybe he or she is English or Austrian?
There is something strange going on, it seems, with the brushwork.
Connoisseurs have, according to the owner, looked at it and thought the portrait and the background are made by the same ‘experimenting’ artist. JM
JM 1888 ? Does that ring a bell somewhere with someone?
Has anybody more information or other suggestions? The owner would love to know more.
