An extensive landscape with picturesque castle ruins at left on a leafy Arcadian glen overlooking a lake and distant mountains, unsigned, 16" by 24" (25" by 32 1/2" in wide gold frame), presenting at first a Hudson River School appearance, but perhaps more likely by an English or Scottish artist, or by a period American artist imitating an English style and scenery. Jasper Francis Cropsey painted similarly but I am not suggesting that this is his work. The work is beautifully painted but frustratingly, there is no hint of a signature. There is a label of a West Los Angeles now-defunct antique gallery on the reverse of the stiff board to which this was long-ago laid down. A most decorative painting worthy of display in your traditional interior. The heavy frame is in very good condition.
