I have this painting I am looking for some information on... I am interested in selling it but do not know how to value it... It is my opinion early 1800's judging by his clothing and hair style... The frame is old and dirty with old style nails and pins holding the picture in place... I have never removed anything, looks like nothing has been done for a long time... The painting itself is starting to crack and has some water damage, I tried to get some closeup pictures... There is no signature that I can see, again I think it is a family portrait... It is from an old farming family in Kilbride...

If anyone has any ideas or opinions please send me a message, I don't think electric heat will help the cracking... Thank you...

UPDATE

After having the frame taken apart it is actually oil painted on a sheet of copper... It is hand painted on copper but may be a picture that has been touched up with paint later... There is a sheet from a magazine on back of the painting, from the 60's... put the frame back together before getting specific date...

If anyone has an interest in this painting please send me a message anytime...
