I picked up this framed piece of art and I'm looking for information on it.
Back has he words Good Friends printed on it.
It looks stitched together. Certainly not painted. A print perhaps ???
Frame itself appears old. Small nails holding the wood backing to the frame.
More photos to follow.
TU in advance for whatever help you can provide.
After looking carefully at Mr. Barber's work, I have doubts about this picture being created by him. His attention to realism and detail are much more developed, imo.
I was using him as a reference point to help you identify the time period, which matches his work and the works that Vicki mentioned, which were so popular during this Victorian era.
In reference to the "type of art", I referenced an article that discussed transferring pictures to fabrics/canvas being developed around the same time period, as well.
Perhaps, the reason it is not signed is because it rather generic to the period, one of many?
Yesterday I had a phone conversation with an art appraiser in my areas.
In her opinion this was an early 20th century magazine cover/page that was framed.
She didn't recognize the painter and she suggested I use google to find a match photos.
