Have your say

Does anybody recognise the chap in this oil painting found behind a print of dogs playing billiards?

Only clue is the inscription Hubert Winsor 1950 at the bottom left of the picture.

Christine Whittaker, of London Road, Blackpool, seen holding the painting, says: “It was a surprise to find this portrait dating back more than 60 years but hopefully somebody knows something about it.”

The framed dog print was given to Christine’s daughter Christina by an elderly friend some years ago. The painting was discovered when the frame was damaged.
