Fine Miniature Luminest Landscape O/C circa 1850

SIZE
5 1/2 x 7” (sight); 10 3/4 x12 1/2” (frame)

DESCRIPTION
Beautiful little Hudson River School oil on canvas. The painting and gesso mat is early-mid 19th century; nice frame is later likely 19th or early 20th century. The painting is unsigned but looks to be American and lines up with several notable academic artists from the early Hudson River/luminest school. The stout frame gives the object the illusion of size. The painting itself is really tiny and charming for that reason.

CONDITION
The painting is excellent, original, and appears to have original varnish. I was tempted to clean it but I didn’t. The gesso mat is slightly warped and split and could be improved with some work.

Price: $425 (includes shipping)
