I would like to know if anyone has more information about the artist and his paintings. We have one of them in the family as he was an ancestor. It is a self portrait.

Good luck. There are a couple of b&w pictures on Artnet.com but I couldn't trace him at all. You could try a post on the Artmagick forum.
