I need some help with finding any information on this piece.
After doing a bunch of research, the most I have is:
Antique (really old 1700-1800s) or (1800-1900)
Oil and maybe mixed media
Really 3dish / textured / thick oil paint (esp the face)
Its got multiple labels or signatures:
MW? WM? JJM?
There is a signature or initials within the red yarn ball - JJM? JTM?
This piece is absolutely unique and so amazing in person (if you had to opportunity to see it in person).
Frame is quite old as well
Image of just the painting:
Image of the painting/frame:
Images of the signatures and writing:
Couple images of the image being filtered/enhanced to see hidden details and other info:
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ive been trying to figure this one out for awhile now.
