I have read that John D. Rockefeller was suckled by a wet nurse in the last months of his life owing to his inability to digest solid food.
It could be a panel from a three panel screen. The painting looks as though it is part of a larger picture. Screens were often painted in such styles on canvas and mounted to a wooden frame/s. It is done in a pastoral style that references earlier european paintings as well as tapestries. If you have an auction house or antique dealer/s in your area, I would have them come to take a look.

Pickings have been slim at the thrift shop I have frequented since my days in high school. The older monied generation that bought bespoke clothing is no more. The clothing that comes in now is of lesser quality and interest. That having been said, I picked up an older Brioni navy blazer and an Oxxford super 130's jacket for a total of eighteen dollars. Not my size, but I hope to put them up on Buying and Selling eventually...

I like the slanted pockets with flaps that are horizontal at their ends. Nice pattern matching as well. Would look better with the top button undone. Do you know who the maker is?
