Old Paintings



One of my readers contacted me recently asking if I could tell if these paintings were painted by Frederick Arthur Bridgman. Since I always enjoy looking at old paintings and playing detective, I asked for photographs of the front and back. By looking for any similarities between the submitted painting to that of an artist's body of work, there is always that hope that something might offer a hint as to it's origins.





Clues can often be glimpsed from the back of a painting on markings in the frames. Unfortunately I could offer no further information and as always recommend that authentication has to be left to those who are trained in this matter.I always recommend that if you have an old painting, which you believe might be by a famous artist, it is best to contact one of the major auction houses and have one of their specialists have a peek.






I am posting these paintings here in case someone does recognize the painting. One never knows ...


Thank you for Visiting!
