In the style of mid nineteenth century American folk art is this charming work (27 1/2" by 20 1/2"---33 1/2" by 26 1/2" framed) depicting a young lady with sun bonnet and scythe and wheat in hand, as if she has just come in from the fields. The pastel mastery is obvious; the artist, anonymous. The work is framed and behind heavy non-glare glass which tends to blur detail and is not generally safe to ship, as it is highly likely to shatter in transit. I propose removing this from frame for shipping; wax or glassine paper placed over it, while it is between boards, would be satisfactory. There is a very small amount of pastel dust adhering to the inside of the glass in her white shawl area. The drawing is a fine, likely east coast work that has found its way to California.
