19th C American Pastoral Scene
This lovely painting is finely executed, yet naive. The trees are quite remarkable, showing very fine detail. With a mountain and waterfalls in the background with a family looking over the brook that ends in a lower pond with a young couple seated on the bank, and an older woman, and various livestock. Unsigned. Measuring 29 x 36-1/4 in. Housed in a fine period carved gilt wood frame, 30-1/4 x 40-1/2. Craquelure, stretcher marks, and minor paint chips in lower right corner, all consistent with age. Could use a good cleaning. Frame with wear and rabbeted out to fit. All consistent with age.
