    I'm really struggling to find out much about this artist. I've found a couple of references of sold paintings but I can't access if they are sold for pennies or pounds or even sold at all.
    Has anyone any better search skills than me in the art world?!
    It's a lovely painting and I'd love to know more about the artist or even the frame if it gives us any pointers.
    References are mid century and British but that's about it!
    Thanks for any help :)

    I think it probably says Jack Levine.

    I thought that too but the Jack Levine equestrian paintings look to have a different signature?

    Just found these two that went through Christies in 2003.

    No link created there and the Christie's list from KSW cannot be read because the print it too small.

    My own suspicion? A non-existent person. The only one with close up looks like factory work to me.

    It's a lovely painting for factory work, Bakers. I wish I could find one of those! I'm kind of of the thought it is factory due to the frame and signature does not match exactly, seems too many differences in the sig.

    Worth getting an auction house to look at or eBay fodder do you think?
    Sadly no room on the wall at home!

    I was referring only to the one KSW posted. Jivvy's most recent post is the only other one I could zoom in on, and unfortunately, doing so takes the image out of focus, so that's not as helpful as it could be.

    I'm not sure if we're all talking about the same thing, but I do not see factory painting in OP's piece.

    Can we get a pic of the full back, taken straight on? And maybe a closeup of one of the frame corners (from the back)?

    I see elements of factory too, the frame especially looks the part to me.

    At least it's not stapled... but... I'm not comfortable with that kind of spray-painted-ish black.

    So, I'll do what I would do if it were my frame and I wanted help: @verybrad

    I will also say, the frame is not the art, I still don't see "factory art" in the piece.

    I've been wrong before. :woot:

    Fortunately I didn’t think it was properly old but the artist definitely has a certain level of skill.
