He is known to have painted over 800 portraits over the course of 35 years. Hundreds of his works are housed in art museums, historical societies, and private collections throughout the United States.
Flaws and specific details to take note of and examine in photos. There are two small indentations on the canvas around the middle where paint loss is present. There is a small spot under the hand of the subject where painting is missing.
Canvas is slightly loose within frame, but should be easy to fix. There are several cracks in the frame and wear also. This is a beautiful piece of history that still contains some mystery as the subject is unknown. Please see photos for specific details of condition. Feel free to make an offer.I'm easy to work with. Painting will be insured and packaged securely and safely. This item is in the category "Art\Paintings".
