Hello
Thanks for the reply,
George Stanfield Walters RSA, RA.RSW.
1838 - 1924
George Walters - George Stanfield Walters was born in 1838 and died in 1924. He was a prolific exhibitor, and he painted on the Channel coasts as well as landscapes in the Lake District, the Thames and Wales and scenes on the Venetian Lagoon. His work is sometimes on a very large scale and he has a penchant for pinks, russets and sunset.. He was a portrait painter, though it wasn't his specialty.

I performed the research based upon the most recent finished auctions and private sells, so the value given is the real market value of your item. This is the only way to know the exact value of your unit.
The value will be in the range of 6,500-9,000$.

I do not think that is the same artist since he signed his painting G.S. Walters. The painting at this link, http://www.rubylane.com/item/213082-RLx20DDOil/Portrait-Oil-Painting-Duchess-De-Chartes, is very similar to mine and by the same artist.

Hello
After a lot of research, I was unable to find any information in the artist. I can confirm as that it's not George Stanfield Walters, it was the only artist that could match. However the signature is different, though it's common that an artist has different signatures, we cannot say that the artist is GS Walter or other contemporary G Walters painter.
Sorry I cannot provide more information about the biography, simply the information doesn't exist.
