  • Small Impressionistic Portrait

    Hello,

    I have a question about a small impressionistic portrait I bought in Holland.

    Oil paint on prepared canvas 1905
    6 x 8 inch

    I have asked the Rijksmuseum in Holland for information for this painting and maybe they could tell me who painted this looking at the style of painting.

    The Rijksmuseum told me that they expect that it is a English painting.
    I looking forward to see if somebody can give me more information about this painting.

    Thanks in advanced!

    The "8d" means 8 shillings, which I guess is what it once sold for a long time ago.

    Not sure what kind of a hat that is. Looks kind of like half a turban with his hair coming out the top. Anyway if you can find a match for his clothes then that might tell you something about where and when it could have been painted, maybe who the subject is.

    [Edit: Oops, not 8 shillings, 8 old pence]
