Pearl I have a painting that I think was probably painted in the 1800's of Robert E. Lee

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I know it hung in the senate and was taken down when he joined th confederacy. My partner who just passed away got it from his aunt who was the sec to the sgt at arms

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I think it is an oil and the frame is held on with pegs
