Default Help finding a painting/name/artist

Hello,
I just found this site, and am hoping someone can help me. I would like to find a copy/print of a painting that had a huge place in my childhood. My Grandfather had this in his hallway, and it made a huge impression on me as a child. Unfortunately, no one in the family seems to know what happened to it. It was oval in shape, and showed the heads of 3 horses. They looked very frightened. I remember them as facing to the left, as you looked at the painting. I can remember seeing it in the 60s, and think it had been there a very long time by then. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Thank you so much!
Carol

I think you are referring to John Frederick Herring's "Pharaoh's Horses".

I joined "Art Conversation because I have a picture that I want to identify and find the artist of. I have never participated in anything like this forum before, hence I am not familiar with setting options to allow me to converse about my picture nor allow me to post the picture. Please advise as to how to accomplish this.

Peter

Make sure you're signed in then follow these simple steps:
1. Go to the Questions forum overview page
2. Click "New Thead"
3. Write your question and use the paperclip icon to upload a digital image.
4. All posts must be manually approved, so be prepared to wat a few hours.

If the picture is extremely large and you can't reduce it (there is a limit of something like 500 kbytes), you can email it to me and I'll post it. My contact info is here:

Default Re: Mimi

Hi John:
To date I have not heard anything about Mimi. I suppose that's possible if the artist/painting are unknown. I wonder, however, if I am proceeding properly. I "search" for "Mimi". Is that the correct procedure?

That should work. I did so and found the thread with the picture here:

I too got that picture, but I haven't seen anything else since that picture was put on line . I suppose that must mean no one reading this knows anything more about the painting. That's OK, I guess. It was a shot in the dark anyways. I was just hoping...

By the way, John. I noticed that the email address I gave when I last wrote you was incorrect. Here is the correct one: pkarch@enter.net

Thanks again,

Peter

Default painting name anyone?

I'm trying to identify the name of a painting that has been in the family for a while. I've seen it once before in a friend's home so I'm sure it's simply a copy of the original. It's a scene of nineteenth century aristocrats gathered in a room listening to some musicians playing. The musicians are on the left hand side of the painting. Further to the left of them are two men and a rather flirtatious looking woman in a yellow dress. On the right side of the painting are a couple women sitting down, facing the musicians, a little girl in a red dress (though wearing a white wig just like the adults) and a couple men in the shadows.
Our copy appears to have been painted by a Burnett, or Barnett, and was purchased in 1910, I think the original was an oil painting.
If you've seen this painting before or know any of the information regarding it that would be much appreciated!

Hi! I'm new to this site. I need help in finding a painting and the artist. The painting is one featuring a gathering of people with men in striped blazers and straw boaters. It is not Renoir's 'The Boating Party'. I remember that one man in a striped blazer and boater dominated the foreground. But, what is the painting called and who is it by? I have scanned the web looking at the impressionists and post impressionists but can't find it. Other people seem to know the painting to which I am referring but, like myself, can't come up with the name or the artist! Your help will be appreciated. Thanks, Guy

Reminds me of Edouard Monet---The Luncheon in the Studio---Boater in foreground.

Am sure I have seen those striped jackets and boaters....somewhere!

OOpsie..forgot the pic.

Eirene, Thank you very much for replying to my request for help. No, the picture you suggest is not the one. In the one to which I'm referring, there are more people and the men are in 'striped blazers' and straw boaters. I think there may be women with parasoles too but I'm not sure. However, your attempt to help is very much appreciated. Thank you! Best wishes, Guy

You could try a Google search with the name "James Jacques Joseph Tissot", or simply James Tissot.

Dear Saintmarc,
Thank you for your suggestion of Tissot. I found two major sites for him and, as I began to trawl, felt sure you had the right man. So much of his work had elements of the picture I'm trying to locate. Alas, I couldn't find the exact one! I have now browsed through sites for: Renior; Cezanne; Gaugauin; Pissaro; Rousseau; Felix Valloton; Theo van Rysselbergh and many others to no avail plus searching under key words such as Edwardian paintings, Henley, Oxford/Cambridge punting etc. etc. It seems that many of the people to whom I speak, know the painting well but, like myself, don't know the name of the artist or the picture. It's a well known image but I can't find it!!! Thank you anyway for your kind help. I really thought you had found the man with Tissot. Someone suggested tha painter might be more modern than the ones I've searched. Best wishes, Guy

Dear 'That comedian', Thank you for your interest in my question and for the links which I have tried. So near and yet so far! Sadly, neither of them is the one. It's tantalising! So many artists show similarities with the one I'm trying to find. The artist may be more modern. I don't know. Anyway, thank you again for your interest. Best wishes, Guy

This one is driving me mad!!!

Are the men all wearing the same jacket like a barbershop quartet? Red and white stripes? What is the background? The ocean or a tea party?

Here's another one -> http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Victorian-Crom...-/270491401137

Dear Eirene,
Ha! Sorry to hear that this one is driving you mad - me too!!! Your latest suggestion also falls on stony ground I'm sorry to say. You ask about the background. It is not an ocean or seafront, more a garden party or croquet match or something to do with the Henely Royal Regatta, along those lines, but I've checked and double checked those ideas without joy. Why is it that everyone seems to know the painting but, like myslef, can't identify it! I'm beginning to wonder if it's illustrative art rather than fine art. Best wishes, Guy

Exclamation if you can help me find this i would be forever thankful

I am looking for a certain print that i originally saw at cabellas in Maine. I took a picture of it with my phone and they gave me the supposedly artist's name (Phillip Goodwin)... The painting is two men in a canoe looking at a bear and a moose fighting... it is an amazing picture and i really would like to find this print somewhere, but I have exhausted my resources. If anybody has any clue as to how i can come to own this painting i would appreciate it
