Judging by the emails, a number of you were onto this study of an old man, which made £56,000 in an English regional auction last week against a £600-£800 estimate. The names Wright of Derby and William Tate (his less well known collaborator) have been mentioned to me. I had a look before the sale, but couldn't figure it out.
