We have inherited a portrait of Prof. Jacques Stock painted in the late 1930's. Based on family tradition he might have been a professor of art.
Is there some site or some way we can search the web based on the face in the portrait? We've tried many different ways to search by name and keep coming up with nothing.
The artist was a family member who died several years ago. The portrait was discovered after he died.
We do know the family member studied portraiture under Thomas Eakins, but that is about all we have to go on.
Many thanks for any help you can give.

I am not looking to earn a degree or anything, just looking for a time filler and to learn something new. In particular painting techniques for Oil and Acrylic on canvas. [more inside]

I want to do something similar to this London artist's idea...but when I think about it I quickly get mired in the logistics. Can you help me decide if I could do something like this that would be environmentally correct plus not cost me money personally? "Art bin"[more inside]

Artfilter: I've decided to take up oil/canvas painting. I have good artistic sensibilities, but no formal training and no supplies. What do I need to know/own? [more inside]
