Beautiful Pastel On Sandpaper
This lovely pastel on sandpaper (also known as marble dust) depicts a relaxing lake or inlet scene with a cabin and tree in the foreground, a man and child in a rowboat on the water, another boat further out, and mountains (perhaps snow-capped) in the background. Housed is an extraordinary period gilded frame. Measuring 35 1/2" wide by 23 1/2" tall; with a site measurement of 27 1/2" wide by 15 1/2" tall. A very lovely pastel painting! C. 1840-1860.
