An old and antique American painting of a seated young man playing a flute in a vaguely defined interior, 24" by 20" (32 1/2" by 28" in mid 20th century frame), unsigned. The talented artist remains anonymous but was obviously talented and probably listed. Note the mantel clock at left and elegant European-style table and chair. Over the years the painting has darkened dramatically, taking on a yellow-brown cast due to decades of grime and smoke. A test cleaning by a restorer shows the white of the lower leg/ankle area. There is a smell of heavy cigarette smoke. The buyer should plan to have this professionally cleaned, which would no doubt transform it. There is some alligatoring of the paint in the cheeks.
