    Sorry about the poor image. This painting is featured on the cover of an antique book I am seeking the identity of. I have been told that this painting was created independently from the book. If I can identify the painting, it may help to track down the book. Any help would be much appreciated. goldbook.jpg bookpainting.jpg
