Although this painting seems at first to be a Hudson River-style green and brown landscape with leafy silhouetted trees, I think it is in fact an English scene----though, I think it possibly by an American artist. The painting measures 18" by 23" on the stretchers and the very nice old gilt frame measures 24" by 29 1/2". It is unsigned, though on the stretcher is written in pencil in 19th century American handwriting "Cornelia Nill" . There could be arguments in either direction, as far as this being by an English or an American artist. Note the group of four children at lower center, then another small child with dog at base of the tree at right, and, most fascinating, there is a young boy wearing a red top, high up in that tree. The painting unfortunately has been roughly handled by previous caretakers, and there is a 9" vertical tear at left as shown. Otherwise it is in very good condition. The frame has value in and of itself---such antique frames are now much sought after by collectors and dealers. It has a few scrapes and losses and the upper right corner has a missing piece of gesso. Encino valley
