Oil on canvas painting, probably English late 19th century, unsigned, of a small body of water, two cottages and a man in a rowboat completing this traditional subject. The work measures 16" by 19 1/2" (24" by 28" in newish framing). The painting could almost be called "Hudson River style" but it is clearly of European origin. Condition appears good overall to the casual observer. Up close there are some issues: I note a small loss at far left in tree, what was once a large roughly 8" boomerang-shaped tear in right-center sky, competently repaired at some point in time, craquelure, especially in the darker portions of the composition, and stretcher bar show-through at top. The faults are not very noticeable at normal viewing distance; this will look like a nice traditional wall landscape.
