Gallivanting in Galashiels

Another wee day out today gallivanting round the charity shops in Galashiels..
Im always on the lookout to add some nice prints and frames to my hall Gallery wall..
Wish they were all real oil paintings hahaha...I can dream...
by Frederick Leighton
Leader of Victorian classical painting, Frederick Leighton (1830 – 1896) created historical and mythological scenes influenced by the Nazarenes and the Italian Renaissance.

Thought I had hit the jackpot when I spotted this oil painting signed Cantrell...then I read this on the internet ....
 It is important that you realize most of the Cantrell paintings on the market are not by John William Cantrell, but decorative paintings done several decades after his death. These paintings were produced in southeast Asia and sold through furniture stores and MLM home parties in the 60's and
70's. Note the lack of age or patina on the canvases and stretcher bars, plus the newer frames. They were painted using acrylic, a faster drying paint. Additionally there is no date next to the signature, like John Cantrell paintings. The artist John William Cantrell worked in an impressionist
en plein aire style, much different then the style of these common pieces.
And last but not least ... The Bush DAC90a radio 1950.
