I wonder when that was framed, it's not contemporary is it?

Go on Jude, jump in, you may not see another for ages. It could be part of your....dare I say it? Christmas present.

Hi Jude I had a look a few days ago, interesting that the seller mostly sells coins and cameras, but does put in random things so I suspect he goes to auctions and buys odd bits that are interesting also.

This is a good site for looking at pics that have gone through auctions

I would read the "signed and dedicated to the artist RB" as if it were given to that artist as a gift?

looking at RB's pictures I wouldn't have 'thought' it was his style. If you look at Robert Bevan images there is one pencil sketch of 'Breton peasants' the same spareness in line isn't there don't think?


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 5 Oct 2012 18:10

l rang the seller yesterday, it was a Meninsky a gift to RB. He was surprised l was'nt bidding for it......l wish l could.

What a way to store a painting will the paint crack when stretched?

I am on my mobile so pic a little


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 20 Jan 2013 17:27

l really don't know, it would probably need to be kept nice and flat before framing and there is another picture on the back, don't like the first one. Won't be bidding:((

measures 20 x 17"


supercrutch Report 20 Jan 2013 17:35

The picture on the reverse looks like a bloke with boobs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't say I like either Jude TBH, much preferred the last one.


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 20 Jan 2013 17:59

l thought the, but would possibly buy the reverse out of the two:))

yes l preferred the other one:)


supercrutch Report 20 Jan 2013 19:31

Well someone wanted it badly to put that jump bid in.


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 20 Jan 2013 19:42

Could be a relative of mine, be interesting to know:)



Jane Report 20 Jan 2013 19:50

Jude I have just read the life of your Gt Grandfather(0r is it Gt Gt ) sorry I can't remember.I found it really fascinating.He was a very talented artist(not all my cup of tea) but still interesting to see his works when you put them up.


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 20 Jan 2013 21:33

Hello Jane....
He was my Grandfather, my dads father:)))))

Must admit there are loads l don't like. He suffered with depression of even bipola and went into dark moods, maybe thats why some are strange?

Thank you:)
