|Hi I also have an 'original' painting after the Hope in the Tate gallery. This was given to my husbands grand father on the occasion of his marraige in the early 1900's by the King Williams Town brass band (South Africa) I saw the second version 2 weeks ago in the Tate but also saw the one that is in private collection in 2002. Who knows what the value of these 'copies' are?|
|My grandmother who was born in 1900 was a painter who copied this painting and had it hanging in her dining room for as long as I could remember. It haunted me all my life. When she died the painting went to my cousin who knows what she did with it. One day antique shopping I found a Borin print of it in the original frame. They both were in good condition and the color in the print were just as I remembered from grandmothers oil painting. It now hangs above my bed. It took me a long time to find out the name and artist of this painting but I did. There is something about this painting that quietly speaks to the viewer about life and how it can be viewed. Every time I look at it I quietly think of my grandmother.|
