Customer Question

I have a oil painting and also a pastel portrait of my late husband done when he was 6 in 1951. Both are signed Fletcher. I am pretty certain these were done by Bramwell Fletcher, a stage and screen performer. My in-laws spoke about the actor that had done them and mentioned he had been in some monster film (actually he had been in the Mummy, I believe.
He also was the standby for Rex Harrison in My Fair Lady and stories go that he had a studio then and started his second career as an artist and could make it in 30 seconds back to the theater if he was needed.
I have not been able to find any pictures of his art on-line and am hoping that you can help. Would love to know the value. I have photos of both. Thank you so much,
