Hi Stuart,
I have inherited a painting which I am told is a Hudson River School artist.  Any possibility you can verify or ID the signature?  Thank you so much!

Anything on the back, on a stretcher bar, perhaps an inscription in pencil?   

Lastly, let me know the dimensions HxW of the canvas itself.
