Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
What is the size?
At your convenience, please send photos.
A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

I have a photo and find no way to send same to you. I cannot find the toolbar referred to. May I fax this photo to you? If so, please give me a fax number? If not, can I mail same to you?

Hi,
I received your message and photo.
By chance can your provide an image of the back side (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close up of the surface so I can see the texture.
Being pastel, is this framed under glass with a spacer?
As well, what information are you seeking on the sitter in this portrait 'Charles Cornelius Saville'?
