    Another piece of art I need help with.

    I picked up a stack of items from this old couple who are moving into an old peeps home.
    I will be posting threads on a few pieces that I don't know much about.

    First is this print. Btw, art is not my thing
    I was told it came from an English castle many years ago. I was immediately drawn to it for some reason, maybe because i am a keen poker player?

    I didn't pay much for it, but did find an old price sticker on the back for $750 (i know that does not mean much)
    And in the print i found a date of 1764 (again may not mean alot)

    Can anyone id the artist? and any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like a print to me. Near 100%. Nice subject matter though. Only other poker prints I've seen are the dogs playing poker prints. Those are great!

    Thanks guys, yeah definitely a print.
    I have been informed it is a Josef Wagner-Hohenberg print.
    Could still be worth a few coin if its an early print, not much but a small profit. Probably not really worth the effort to take out of the frame to check though, so I will stick it up on my wall.
