With his signature W.S. Bucklin in the lower right corner, this print has been identified as"Cottage by the Stream." A widely acclaimed artist in pencil sketches, water color and oil, Bucklin (1851-1928) is best known for landscapes and particularly woods and streams. Although he traveled America many times, he was born and lived most of his life in New Jersey with most of his woodland scenes done near his home.
While a print may be second-best to the real thing, in Bucklin's case, they are certainly more affordable. Signature is difficult to read on the dark edge of the stream (see photo). This print is not dated, but undoubtedly vintage as evidenced by foxing on the paper surrounding the print. The back appears to have been re-done in more recent years with new paper and wire as well as rubber wall pads on the bottom corners. Frame measures 19 x 23 inches. Actual print is 11 x 15 inches.
