Hi There~

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to help with your question.

I would be happy to help you assess your Landseer print.

What is the size?

A full shot of the artwork with frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture would be ideal.

When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.

Just from the iPad

Hi Carol,

I have noted that customer's in the past have had some problems sharing photos using an iPad - although I am not a tech support person, so my scope is limited here on that front.

Are you using Firefox as your browser on your iPad?

Did you try emailing? and if so, did you email from the address you used to sign in to justanswer.com?

Did you try to go to imgur.com and drag the photos from your iPad to their site?

Expert:  Nora replied 3 years ago.
Hi Carol,

Excellent work with the photos - welcome to the tech world ;)

A few questions, is the border around the image a matte frame or is it all one sheet. Meaning is the border a piece on top of the picture or not?

As well, if you look at the lower left and lower right corners of the image, is there any small print indicating the publisher and engraver?

Thanks and I will look forward to more information from you.

Sincerely,
Nora

Hi Carol,

Thanks for the image of the back of the print.

The detail matches the original painting and more than likely produced by the intaglio print process known as ‘photogravure’ and then colored in or as a chromolithograph.

The frame dates to the turn of the 20th century.

A company named W.D. & HO Wills from Bristol & London did produce a series of 50 different photogravure prints between 1901-1917. This image of Shoeing the Bay Mare was No. 12 in their series.

The image itself is of a Mr. Jacob Bell with his favorite mare, “Old Batty”. The original painting by Landseer is in the National Gallery in London.

Landseer would not have had a personal hand in the making of this print. Publishers either bought rights, or if out of realm of copyright, simply published and sold images as they pleased.

On today’s market, this larger size early 20th century color print in original frame would carry an estimate of $150 - $300.

Feel free if you have further questions about your item.
