Talking 3 miniture art productions

I have 3 Campbell-Taylor miniture art rounds in pink bakalite. Does anyone know any information as to when these were made. I have "the patchwork quilt", "mafalda", and a third one with no name. i'm not looking for value as they are priceless to me and hold little to no resale value. I was more interested in when they were produced.

Default Mafalda

I came upon this site when I was searching for L Campbell Taylor.

Not lucky enough to have one of his paintings but I do have a wonderful print of his that I got from my husbands aunt when she died in 1964.
What I liked about the print was the lady looked just like my great grandmother and I have a photo of my great grandmother taken in more or less the same setting.

I never really looked to see who had done the painting until just the other day.
so I thought I would put his name in the search engine and see what came up.
No lucky finding anything about the painting but did find this site

The print is called Mafalda "Lady in Blue" It really is beautiful

Does anyone happen to know when this may have been painted and are prints worth anything (not that I intend to sell it)

i bought a copy of the work in question today at an estate sale...i am investigating it for the first time tonite. From the discription given, I believe it to be called "The Japanese Room" altho someone wrote on the paper backing on the frame "Spinning Wheel by Campbell Taylor". Good luck.

I have 3 prints by L Campbell Taylor, 2 were inherited from my wife's mother's cousin!! Lady being fitted into a white ball gown by a lady in blue and "The Letter", both very well framed and in excellent condition. I bought a print of "The Sampler" today in a Sevenoaks charity shop for 12. The frame is in an antique silver with an inner green band which picks out the green of the lady's dress. The frame is slightly distressed and the print itself needs cleaning. The backing is Kraft paper with sellotape (Yuk) applied at some time. It was framed in Darlington, Co Durham.

Hope this helps with regard to value (tongue in cheek!) Anyway, they are in our bedroom and I love them

I just acquired a print of Mafalda. It has the phrase PALLAS GALLERY LTD. LONDON and RA after the artist's name. I am just starting some research on today. The lady I got it form said her grandmother had it for a very long time. A first web search of the name Mafalda is showing a wife of Phillip of Hesse. Hopefully the little I found may be of help to someone.

I am particularly attracted to the subject matter of these two works and am considering trying to purchase others when they become available. Where can I find information about L. Campbell Taylor? I am particularly interested in what motivated him to paint women at leisure, among other questions.

Thank You.

Just FYI His paintings are often mistaken for Prints. They are NOT PRINTS, The old style of painting had that look to it. these are real paintings. and are VERY VERY VERY super valuable. think 6 figures......... I stumbled apon one by sheer accident. and did research on him. the painting that I have is one of a kind. and has been in a private collection since it was painted. its very valuable. dont sell it at a yard sale lol.... take it to get it appraised from a real appraiser... each has a different value to them.. good luck and happy painting hunting....

Default black and white painting

I have a black and white painting by LCT signed and dated 1902 - of a woman and man - she is wearing a crinoline and has a white powdered wig and he is crouching down (also wearing a white wig), holding a pistol. Any ideas what this picture is called?

Default Prints vs reproductions

Sorry to disappoint but all you of you who wrote about having prints probably have reproductions of paintings. No amount of signing, numbering or documentation can change that.

Handpulled prints such as lithographs, etchings, woodblock or silkscreen are considered to be original works of art.

Reproductions are more like posters so the price depends on what people are willing to pay for an authograph of a well known artist on a copy.

Default The Sampler

Would like some info on the Sampler painting that I have. It looks like it has brush marks with some chips missing, and it could use a cleaning. It is about 18in. by 21 in., not including the gold Victorian like frame. On the back paper it has, what looks like a book plate, and it reads, "Publication of Edward Gross Co.,Inc., 118 East 16th St., New York. On the very bottom of the back of the wood frame penciled in is 2282. Am curious if there is any value to it at all. Thank you for any help you can give me in this.

Default watercolour

Hello,

Did LCT ever paint watercolour or gouache? I saw a painting (watercolour I would say) portraying two persons playing chess, another person standing and a glass table with a Chinese vase in front. Thanks in advance for your reply.
