1891 Oil on Canvas Monogrammed WB


Hi everyone 🙂
I’ve got this 27″X36″ (69X92 cm) oil on canvas, monogrammed WB and dated 1891.
If anyone recognises the artist I would greatly appreciate the help.
I also included the close up of the people in the carriage, so perhaps identifying region of origin of people in there would give some leads.

  1. Hello Merray,

    Couldn’t it simply be by Frederick William Billing (German-American, 1835-1914), as the label suggests?
    The monogram seems to have a reverse F connected to the W.

  2. Vietato, I think you are absolutely right! I just didn’t pay much attention to the label, as thought it was only in regards to shipping, nothing more. I googled though for the words on it, “billing” being a general term gave me tons of unrelevant results. Then the words themselves didn’t click in my mind as a name, just “FW” – forward and “Billing” as a billing department, terms seen and used daily.  🙂
    Thanks a lot!
