So what do ya'll think? I've written the seller asking for the provenance of this item and why he identifies it as a portrait of Chopin.

The response:

found it in the trash and it looks like him. It looks like he sat for it. I will probably put a better pic on later.

No Way, Frycek. The man in this picture looks too robust and happy.

Yes.

That doesn't look like a man who lived with Aurore. \:\)

Mel, you got that right.

I'd say the man looks to be in his late 20's, early 30's. Chopin was living with that woman during this time period, age-wise.

That woman (that's what Frycek and I call her) often referred to him as a "...corpse."

Sweet lady!
