Art, The Unknown Artist

Sometimes you come across old paintings that capture your attention for some unknown reason.  And, even though the artist has signed them you cannot decipher the writing. That was the case a couple of months ago when I saw some rather large paintings of a boy and girl hanging on the wall. Their condition was extremely poor and the cost too much, so I didn’t buy them.  However, I still wonder how old they are and who painted them.

Is anyone familiar with who the artist is?

  1. At first sight they look like First Communion pictures commissioned to order upon the occasion. Although the clothing does not match the occasion. Maybe pictures of these children ready for evening prayers.

  2. So lovely. Maybe someone will discover who through similar paintings.

  3. Intriguing – shame the signature is so indecipherable…..

  4. I’m sorry, I can’t help to solve the mystery, but they look wonderful and I’m sure there’s a great history awaiting us. 🙂

  5. Lovely paintings, in oil aren’t they?
