Signed Leslie Main. This is an excellent work by Leslie Main. It is based on the work of Hermann Kern, a very famous Hungarian artist of the 19th Century. This work will look spectacular when framed. It is common for talented artists to copy the work of masters to show their talent. I know nothing about Leslie Main. In most cases the signature on oils is either illegible or unknown. Paying to find out would be expensive, and I do not feel it is sensible unless you think a work is worth thousands or hundreds of thousands. I doubt VERY much this one is …. but the artist is VERY talented. The vast majority of artists do not receive the credit they deserve. That does not need to stop you from enjoying a hand made work of art by a very talented artist. I leave it to you to research if you wish.
I have cut the wood for this frame, but have not had time to make yet. Will take me about a week if interest shown. Find out why I make my own frames here.
