The painting is signed, lower right, "ARMSTRONG".
The painting appears to be in perfect condition. The frame has some light marks from storage. These blend with the frame design when hung.
On the back there is an "Artists Certificate" as shown. The title was written in pen "Scene West of Denver" and then written in pencil below "Prospect Trail". Prospect Trail is a known trail located near Telluride, Colorado.
The Artist Certificate also describes the use of Schminke "Isochromatic" oil paint. The artist is listed as "W.S. Armstrong" on the certificate. The painting was completed Oct 10, 1935. It was completed in a studio using a "field sketch".
In pencil on the back of the painting is written "Main Library Denver 1938" and then "North Denver Library 1940". So the painting was displayed in Denver libraries for years as part of the collection.
