American School, 19th Century
"Resting for the night." Unsigned, titled below, inscription on right edge reads "an original sketch by the author." Watercolor on paper, 10 x 14 in., in a gilt gesso frame. Condition: Laid down onto cardboard, light toning.
Provenance: The Estate of Sir Edwin A.G. Manton.
The paper the painting was executed on has been applied to cardboard. There is overall very minor toning due to previous acidic backing. It looks like there might be a repaired tear at left edge about halfway down and angeled toward upper center about 2 in. long. It is not glaring , only noticeable under very close inspection.
