This lithograph is totally unmarked. Tony Sargeant believes it must be a well know subject. His first thoughts were that it might depict Leporello from Mozart’s Don Giovanni but could find no similar images. If anybody reading this has any suggestions please send them as a comment. Many thanks.
Anthony Sargeant would appreciate any help in identifying this unsigned oil on canvas portrait of a young girl. It has a pre-raphaelite look about it. Somebody cared enough about it to have it relined (judging by the canvas and stretcher onto which it was put the relining was done many years ago). It came with other pictures bought at auction and was unframed. As can be seen there are losses to the paint on the left hand side and top but the face is in good condition with the exception of a small loss to the lower lip. It measures 29 cm x 34 cm.
HELP please –
We are looking for help from the cognoscenti of 20th Century British art – Anthony J Sargeant bought a job lot of watercolours and prints at a Shropshire UK auction the other day (20 or so … mostly rubbish ! – you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find the Prince sometimes) for three charming mid 20th Century woodcuts (one by Clare Leighton – “Man Shelling Beans” with hollyhocks in background : another by Clifford Webb – from “The White Llama” the Golden cockerel Press 1938 : and a third which looks familiar but we cannot identify it – two Amazon warriors on horseback ? see below – any suggestions please – subject ? or artist (the three woodcuts are all in identical mounts frames so it might be related – probably British 1930s). Inner dimensions of the mount are 8.5 by 10 cm so quite small.
