Found in southwestern New Hampshire is this charming drawing, 7 3/4" by 5 3/4" (9 5/8" by 7 3/8"), the subject a lady with a slight neoclassical profile, standing isolated against an extensive landscape. There's no signature nor other information but it would appear to be an American drawing dating to the 2nd quarter of the 19th century. Condition is very good save for a 3/8" by 1/4" disturbed area in the sky that appears at first glance to be a drip of some kind but which appears to actually be some kind of sticky foreign matter like glue with paper residue adhering. It is much smaller than my images would suggest and is hardly a serious issue within the context of a work this old. Note the exceptional detail and folky overall feeling. The frame appears to be original and has gilt inner portion and hand painted faux wood grain on the outer portion. There is some wear especially at upper left but again within the age context it is not significant.
