    Dear Suzay,

    You don’t know me, but I’m a historian from the Netherlands, interested in American history and art.
    I like your Gallery website. I noticed you have several paintings listed made by Samuel Stillman Osgood (1808-85), who is a very underrated artist.
    Now I wonder: where did you get the information from about one of his paintings, titled ‘Venus Stealing Cupid’s Last Arrow’? I know it was auctioned by Christie’s East back in 1992, but they didn’t identify Sam as the painter. You obviously did, and I take my hat off.

    Just curious, but I’d be much obliged if you could give me an answer.

    Thank you,

    Ton Fafianie.

    Christie’s identified the painter wrongly as Samuel S. Good. So, who made the connection with Samuel Stillman Osgood? There are lots of riddles surrounding the painting. Can anyone enlighten me or fill in the colors?

    Thank you,

    Ton Fafianie.
