thank you for the photos I will begin on the signature and look forward to the measurements.
Thank you for the measurements I still looking for the artist as it is not one well known in the artist books I will post back as soon as I am finished with the evaluation. Thank you for your help in measurements and close ups. I appreciate this.
I have been unable to place the artist it is r m powers or m powers. I do know it is 1700-1800 and the frame looks to be the original frame from the period.. Here is the link that tells more about this period of time in art. http://www.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=3753923
The value on a framed painting of this size and subject is 1800-2500.00 It is in excellent condition for the age and it appears to have been well cared for. I have tried every artist research guide I have available and can not find the artist listed. It is an exquisite painting.
Thank you for sharing this.
