My wife bought a picture at an auction and it came bundled with a few others. This is one of them. It is a charcoal drawing. On the back it has in pencil, no 6, below that is the artist name and it looks like J. Juisru to me and this is where I need your help. Is that the correct spelling? What do you think. Can anyone identify the portriate.

Looks like Booth to me. Less the part in his hair and the goatee.

There are some similarities John Wills Booth. And yes it does have a no 16 on the back. My typo. Oops.

Do a reverse image search however that works. I don't know how to do it but I hear people say it alot.


When you earnestly believe you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, there's no end to what you can't do.

I tried the reverse image search. Google hasn't seen this picture before.

Keith. Nice to see you on both forums. Treasure net has a bunch of very smart, helpful people who know how to find Information on some crazy weird stuff. Normally they are quick to identify an item but this picture has them stumped. Keep searching for the beep.

Treasure.net is one of the forums I look at sometimes, but the way I found your picture on there was by touching the image of your artwork, until a menu appears and selecting "search google for this image". For one of a kind art pieces, that are not well known, not much will come up, but google will show similar images. Most artists are fairly fixed, stylistically and their art looks similar enough that google will often show it. I have been able to figure out who artists were before just by looking for similar art, with the same hard to read signature, that had been identified.

I found similar art to yours, but none with a similar signature.

That may not be the artist's signature but the name of the person in the portrait.

The first letter is a W not a J.

Probably the artist's name. Looks like W. Jensru to me.

The "W" is a possibility but not definitive, especially since the first letter of the second name is so closely related in structure. Try matching that style with any known calligraphy for that time period. 1800's.
