since about Victorian times (roughly 1837 on)
Hi - I found a nice oil of an old Native American man at the flea market today. The portrait looks like a Hopi maybe Navajo. It's signed Thomas Armstrong Smith. It's painted on burlap. Do you have any info on this painting?Thank You,
Sorry I can't track down your artist at all - but I am not really familiar with American artists.
Is Thomas Armstrong Smith an American Artist?Would an attached picture help in Identifing the painting? The reason I'm asking s because the "The Hay Field" painting has the same burlap background like the painting I found. Thank You,
Thank you but I think you are confusing two artists. Thomas Armstrong as featured here was a British artist who as far as I know never went to the States. I'm sorry I know virtually nothing about American artists.
Thomas Armstrong Smith was my uncle who painted later in life. I have several of his original paintings here. Please contact me for more info email@example.com
Thank you but though I love his works I don't really need any additional information at the moment.
wait, which one is Antigone and which one is Ismene?
Hello Hermes, Thomas Armstrong was closely related to my maternal grandmother. I'd never managed to see more than one reproduction of any of his paintings, so was delighted to find your blog. Thank you!I think I can see why he gave up painting ...V&A website has a full obit, reprodced from 'The Times', in case you're interested.
When is the picture showing Antigone and Ismene, made? I really need the answer fast, presentation is thursday... :S
Antigone and Ismeneis not datedhttp://www.artnet.com/artists/lotdetailpage.aspx?lot_id=88B8D2AFBC4F350F547F7DED04FA9658
