Lovely continental scene By New York artist Platt Powell Ryder.Oil on art board signed "P.P.Ryder A.N.A." The scene is of a village Ryder had painted many times before but this was a close up of its inhabitants and the market life of the times. Panel is also stamped with Ryders estate stamp on the reverse.
Painting comes with its original Holland Galleries, New York bill of sale and is underglass in the original frame.Painting dates from the 1880s.Outer frame dimension is 16 3/4" x 19 1/4", painting is 7 5/8" x 10" approximate.
Condition: painting retains good color and under black light shows one flaw(see photo). A paint chip was reattached to the composition at some time in the past,it is smaller than a dime.The chip is original to the painting and only the edges show slightly.easily retouched as it is in the dark foliage. Frame is original and has a broken corner( I have the piece) and other roughness.For being over 100 Painting and frame are in pretty good but not perfect shape.
