Oil on small wood panel that appears to be an old cigar box lid, 8 1/2" by 4 1/2", (10 3/4" by 6 3/4" as framed), signed at lower right "Lily Vosburgh", the subject a church steeple in France, impressionistically rendered trees largely obscuring it. Affixed to the reverse is a typed 20th century label which reads "A small church in the south of France as painted by Lily Vosburgh in the 1930's", and below that "JB" AND "$22.50". The printed label side of the cigar box lid forms the reverse side of the panel; at bottom, incised into the wood, appears to be written "MAY 04" or "MAY 34". So this might well be a date. Vosburgh is a listed artist but there does not appear to be a lot of information on her out there. She was born in Ohio and apparently lived to nearly the age of 100. CONDITION: there is a vertical hairline crack about 4 inches long at top center extending down; this follows the grain of the wood of the cigar box top, for decades a favorite, handy, inexpensive painting surface for artists. It can be nearly invisible in some photos/from some angles but can be intentionally accentuated by lighting angle and a slight application of pressure. This is repairable. Otherwise the work is just original with slight soiling from age. .
