This is an original oil on canvas painting on stretcher presented in a period gold frame. The size of the canvas is approximately 16 x 20 inches. The painting surface is in very good condition with no signs of flaking. The appears to be only one small repair to the back of the canvas with wax (less than the size of a dime). This work is clean and bright, ready to hang. Signed by the artist in the lower left corner.
