Three Paintings of Men


A rather random post, but when you edit a blog like this one you find yourself squirreling bits and piece on your hard drive in the hope that one day they will make a post. These three images all ended up with me in that way and the only things they have in common is that they were auctioned in real-world auction houses in the last few years, they were all sold without attribution or further information and they all caught my eye as having some quality about them. I have admitted defeat in the optimistic thought that they might one day be identified and blogged more effectively and so I am sharing them tonight simply as random paintings of men - for your pleasure!

I found the standing boy on an austion site, Fieldings:
"M.J.WALKER (EARLY 20TH CENTURY) - Portrait of a nude boy model, oil on canvas, inscribed on Royal Academy Schools label verso, unframed, 76cm x 45.5cm"
