This sailor is navigating his skiff down a canal or across a pond. Nice impressionistic painting, signed lower left, Ripley 65. It could be Ripley, Riblet or Riplet. I see no scratches, holes or restorations. The painting measures 14 inches wide and 18 inches tall. Set in its original wood frame that measures 16-1/4 inches wide and 20-1/4 inches tall. Frame has some light scratching around edges but still looks nice. On the verso the original back paper has some small tears and the original sales tag. It sold for $350 in 1965. I cannot read the signature. If you would like new back paper please let me know and I will have it put on free of charge.
