A beautiful drawing of the year 1878, featuring a number of women and a solitary man, most apparently gossiping at a picnic or other outdoor social meeting in a wooded setting, the place given as "Lake George". The famous upstate lake features in many an American painting of the period, and it was frequented by many notable artists of the time. Given the skill shown in our drawing, the artist was likely one of these notables, perhaps even one of the Hudson River greats. The drawing is taped at one edge to a board. Frame is modern day but in good condition. Measurements are 8 1/4" by 12 3/4" inside the mat and 16" by 20 1/2" as framed. As final image shows, the paper has some losses in margin and a tear crudely taped, and a light crease; but none of that seems to be showing on the front side.
