A painting on light blue illustration board, sizable at 24" by 36" including its thin strip frame, signed at lower right by artist B. G. Dorsey. The subject is a white classic New England home with green shutters, pictured in early autumn, the trees turning colors. A lone figure seems to knit at the side of the house, a rowboat is tied up at the convenient dock, and a sailing craft and the ocean beyond appear at left. The idealized scene is classic Americana. It appears to be after American artist Frances McKay (1880-), (see two works by that artist in my shop for comparison). McKay painted these ideal, blissful, somewhat contrived scenes of happy Americana. I have not been able to locate information on Dorsey. The painting is in good condition with just a crack at upper right corner; the frame is loose and it is proving difficult to keep it all holding together.
