I remember one cursive F appearing close to the mirror image of the printed F but there was also a very rounded F shape. I thought I'd never forget those shapes! Because I'm a bit dyslexic it took more brain power for me to get those curves correct but I stopped using cursive about 30 years ago.
For the purpose of this thread, the F in the painting did seem similar to the one on the passport. But again, depending on the instrument the shapes may change dramatically. The "F" below is close to the one I was originally taught.
