 Presented for your bids is oil on canvas, signed lower right corner - John S. Sargent. Size 21" x 28 1/4" (53.5 x       72 cm). Partial label on back (see photo). I did not realize how big name Sargent is, and for those of you who       deal with high end fine art you know how hard it is to get someone to authenticate big name art. I have hired an       expert (Ph.D. Fine Art Services) to do Analysis to determine the age of the painting. Two page report consists of:     1. Visual Examination (medium, support, stretcher, selvage, fasteners, paint layer & ultra violent examination. 2.  Chemical Analysis and 3. Conclusion. In the conclusion it reads: "It is my opinion, that this painting was painted   before 1925, a year of John Singer Sargent's death." I have enclosed some images of the letter bellow. To a       serious bidder I can fax a copy of the letter and to a winning bidder I will send the original letter that incl. experts       name, address, phone #, etc. Since I only have this to go with the painting, I am selling it as being attributed to       John Singer Sargent. I don't have time to pursue this further as I need to raise money for wedding. My reserve is       very low, but I hope it will sell for the right amount that it deserves. I chose to do private auction to protect the       identity of the bidders. Please do your own research before placing final bid. Be patient, as I have a lot of images      for you. Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions, and I will try to answer to the best of my ability. I      hope this document will help! Serious bidders only, please. Thank you for looking and I welcome your bids.      Lucky buyer to pay priority S/H/I. Money order or certified check only. Payment must be received within 10      days from auction end. THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK!
