Description:

Vincent Colyer (American, 1825-1888)

Boating on the Lake
Unsigned, identified on the frame.
Oil on canvas, 24 1/2 x 30 1/2 in. (62.2 x 77.5 cm), framed.
Condition: Retouch, abrasions, craquelure, stretched around wood panel to stretcher bars.

Provenance: Robert C. Eldred Co. Inc., March 16, 1991.
Estimate $1,000-1,500

The retouch is minor scattered dashes, with several broader areas (one to an abrasion), near the left edge. The back of the work is protected by a thin panel between the canvas and the stretcher, but the canvas does not seem to be adhered to this panel. There is a 1/4 inch abrasion to the sky u.r. The painting would benefit from cleaning.
