George Inness (American, 1825-1894)


George Inness (American, 1825-1894)

Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000

Along the River, ca. 1868
Oil on Academy Board (in original artist-made frame)
Signed and dated
12" x 18"
Provenance: Closson Galleries, Cincinnati (label on verso)
Private Collection, California
Note: This painting will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné currently being compiled by Michael Quick.

Generally good condition commensurate with age. Painting is heavily varnished, but presents well. Note on verso states: Cleaned, revarnished December 1967 D. K. Osborne Asheville, N.C. Craquelure throughout. Spiderweb craquelure in upper right likely inherent to the choice of materials used by the artist. There are two tiny lifts in upper left of composition, which also seem related to the materials. No flourescing noted under blacklight inspection.
