Sepia ink on paper drawing, 5 3/4" by 3 3/4" inside a red mat opening, 11" by 8 1/2" as framed, signed at lower left and dated there 1864, by listed English woman artist SARAH LOUISA KILPACK (1840-1909). This is a sweet, beautiful little drawing by an artist who seems to have created mostly coastal landscapes in oil, especially along the English Channel or around the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey. This would be an early work created when she would have been in only her mid 20's. The paper has browned with age and obviously this drawing has been under many mats, each of which left a mark near the edges. Presently the drawing is not under glass. A new mat and some glass will prepare it for its next 150 years. The drawing would be a fine addition to a small wall in hallway, landing or dressing area.
