D. Jerome Elwell (American, 1847-1912)

Old Gate Tower, Bruges-Belgium
Signed "D. Jerome Elwell." l.l., titled, dated, and signed "...8/1877 D. Jerome
Elwell." on the reverse.
Oil on canvas, 16 x 13 in. (40.6 x 33.0 cm), within a frame liner.

Craquelure overall, but more noticeable in the shadows on the grass and in the shady areas c.l. behind the row of trees. Surface grime is not severe, but work would benefit from a light cleaning. No additional condition issues to report.
