Painting  
Does anyone have any info about this painting? It's been in our family since I was really little (or possibly even before I was born). I did a reverse GIS and didn't come up with anything.

Is there an artist's signature on it?

No, I've looked and I can't find one. It's also fairly "flat", so it's probably a print/copy as well. If that matters.

It's probably on the back or hidden under the edge of the frame

I was thinking that too actually. I'm not about to take the thing apart to check, though.

Older family members haven't been any help?

i think if you take a picture of it in better light/with a better camera and have it cropped better, you might have better luck doing a google image search.

yeah, I'll probably have to wait on that (better pic that is), I don't have a better camera (this was taken w/cell phone). I do have a digital camera, but it's literally over a dozen years old and the same resolution as the cell camera anyway, plus every single picture has weird little colored/light spots on them when I upload them to my computer, so I need to get a new digital camera. Hopefully one with a higher res than 1.3 megapixels.

as for cropping I just totally forgot ha ha :p

No idea, sorry! But could you put the picture under a cut please? It's messing with my friends page :(

Oh, sorry! Will do~

If you could find anything that looked like a signature on it, that would probably help... I've tried google image searching a couple of painters whose work that looks vaguely like it could be in the same general style as (Gainsborough and Fragonard) and had no luck.

Can you get a cell phone pic of this in sunlight? Anything to get the colors right would probably fix the GIS. I tried rebalancing this one in Photoshop, but it's do dim.

If you can't get a higher-quality photo, could you possibly list any colours/items/fine details featured in the painting, to assist with search terms? (Because I've been ploughing through a stack of C17th/C17th-esque paintings with lutes/mandolins in, hunting for this one, and I'll be really embarrassed if it turns out that boyo in the blue doublet there is actually toting some kind of giant humbug. ;) )
