A classic old landscape with figures, old structures and feathery trees, somewhat in the Old Master tradition, but created in the mid 19th century, likely in New York, by an unknown yet obviously accomplished artist. The oil on canvas, unframed, measures 24" by 32 1/4". On the reverse are two canvas stencil stamps, one from London, (G. Rowney & Co.), one from New York (Goupil & Co., 289 Broadway). The presence of the two stencils suggests that a blank canvas was imported on a wholesale basis from London to New York and once in New York was re-sold to an artist who painted this picture. The George Rowney firm exported canvasas to America, and from internet research, I have determined that the "G. Rowney" name was used from 1848 to 1858. Goupil & Co. opened in New York in 1848 and went through changes by 1883, so that timeline would help to date this painting to the 1850's or early 1860's. The work needs restoration, as there are old repairs, missing flakes (especially at lower left), considerable number of overpainted areas, soiling, a small tear, craquelure, and the other typical flaws that come with paintings of this age. Once restored and framed in gold, it will return to the beautiful classic work it was when created. Some more photos available upon request.
