The artist is (Emanuel) E. Phillips Fox (1865-1915) Australian. If you do an internet search for this name you will find other paintings and sale prices.  Southeby's Australia has sold paintings by this artist in Melbourne.  It's good and it's valuable.

Thank you so much Michael, I truly appreciate you taking the time to inspect the painting and provide me with this information. 

It looks as though the piece titled "The Ferry" is currently housed in the Art Gallery of New South Wales. I assume that means that mine is a very well done forgery? or should I contact the museum to see if it is still there! Smile I do not know enough about art but I am an avid student of all antiques, collectibles, artifacts, ephemera etc.

I would guess that there are many forged artwork circulating the world today...


should I contact the museum to confirm my suspicion and if so, does the painting still hold value? Is it legal to own?


Kindest Regards,
