This is one of those paintings, I really wish I knew who the artist was. Signed upper right hand corner, I cannot make out exactly what it says. Something like J Recher or Becher, not really sure. It is a fantastic painting and I am sure it was done by a trained artist. It has a certain German or Continental feel to it, except that it has an American Framing label on the back. Oil on artist's board measuring 17 3/4 x 21 1/2 inches, the painting is in good condition. A few minor scuffs and an obvious layer of surface grime but nothing too bad. I personally like the darkness of the painting but a good cleaning would make it pop. Original period frame is complimentary and ready to hang. Frame measures 24 1/4 x 20 1/4 inches.
