Have you ever bought a painting that is more than 100 years

Have you ever bought a painting that is more than 100 years old? Leeds Tram in the Moonlight was painted by Wilfred Jenkins (1857-1936), a British artist famous for his moonlit landscapes and cityscapes. It is the first of three moonlit scenes I will post today. And to show that great art does not have to be expensive, this painting was in 2007 for only $630, all costs included. As you can guess by this price, Jenkins was not a very well-known artist during and after his life. Sometimes, it just takes a long time for great artist to be discovered (if at all), and with the rise of artworks being shared on social media, the popularity of Jenkins quickly increases? And if you have ever bought or inherited an old painting, I would love to hear about it. Just comment below or send me a DM. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #Moon #Moonlight #Moonlit #Jenkins #WilfredJenkins #BritishArt #BritishArtist #BritishPainter #Tram #Leeds
