Bearded Man, Vintage Oil Painting by Stephen Bagnell (1930-1996), Creepy Man, Wizard, Merlin, Haunted Man, Haunted House Decor, Goth (C406)
This haunting painting by Stephen Bagnell (1930-1996) is full of intricate details. It has layers and layers of color and strokes that comprise this man's face. I believe it is an oil painting.
I found information a year ago about this artist in a forum. It was said that he spent some time down the Jersey Shore in the 1960s/70s. I believe he does have family remaining who follow his works.
I do not know the date this piece was made, nor do I know the TITLE.
I call it "Haunted Merlin" It makes me think of the moment in Arthurian Ledgend, when Merlin watched King Arthur and Mordred Slay each other.
Condition - It is very dark but the white hairs pop out at you. There is a large crease at the bottom that looks like it was folded. Other than these mentioned.
I do not see anything major. (I am not an art dealer, nor an expert) The frame has dings and bumps.
The backing is a piece of corrugated cardboard. I have not tried to remove it.
