Who is the artist? Oil painting of a Fisherman



Anthony Sargeant would like any help in identifying the artist of this well executed and lively portrait. It is an unsigned oil painting that came in an old, probably late Victorian, frame (glazed with old glass). It has been relined many years ago and looks stylistically to be 19th Century. The ruler by the side is for scale is 30 cm long thus the painting measures 20 cm x 25 cm. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I think the man is a wearing a sou’wester hence the ‘fisherman’ description. There are no marks or other identification on the canvas or frame.
