Seller: brianat53 (3,681) 99.7%, Location: Wallkill, New York, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 122916679999 Large oil on canvas painting of serious looking woman sitting. I am guessing it is 19th century, but it seems to have for some ungodly reason been retouched by someone along its journey; the white at bottom, where she holds something in her hand, seems to be very bold and touched; it also appears the wanna-be artist who monkeyed around with his whites, also got a drip in front of her. Please view any and all imperfections, as I took many photos and do not want to mess with any return shipping. The frame is 24" X 29" outside, 17" X 22" inside, and 4" deep. Stretched canvas looks much older than what I at first thought was original frame; the stretcher has metal corner tags impressed: Pat. Feb. 13, 1883, June 16, 1885; I am figuring the artwork from about that time. Imperfections on canvas include damages behind womans head, behind her right shoulder, two blemishes over left wrist, the aforementioned possible in-painting on cloth clenched in her right hand, a white drip over her breast, and the central tape repair visible from the back, is repair to just behind her eye on front. There is damage to the frame as well. If I can get this to you less expensively, I will refund difference via paypal; it is quite large and heavy. This was obviously quite a great piece of museum quality art prior to time and perhaps someone messing with it. Still a gem, and perhaps someone else can restore her to original glory. Something illegibly written on back. Selling as attic found.
