Fine Art/American Landscape from last half of 19th century
I purchased this painting several years ago. It was so dirty
that the only color I could see was brown. Thinking that it was an amateur painting, I cleaned it to the best of my ability with an over the counter oil painting cleaner. It started looking much better and I began to think that the painting was professionally done.
My question is whether you, the expert, think it was painted by a
known professional artist. If so, could you suggest any possible names. Any information would be helpful.
The painting is in it's original Victorian frame.
The size is 16" X 26".
I will e-mail photos of the front and back to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fred, The painting exhibits very good quality, but you may have ruined it with cleaning. Can you take it out of the frame and send me several different images, including close-ups (use your macro setting), and reduce the size of your jpegs, not so damn large.
