Alexander Helwig Wyant (American, 1836-1892)

Late Summer Landscape
Signed "A.H. Wyant" l.l.
Oil on canvas, 16 x 23 1/2 in. (41.3 x 59.8 cm), framed (under glass).
Condition: Minor retouch, weakened tacking edges, varnish inconsistencies, surface grime.
Estimate $4,000-6,000

Separation of tacking edges in several places along the top edge and upper sides. Areas of more reflective varnish overall, but most noticeable in the darker shadows in l.r.

Retouch seems to be old, as it fluoresces only very palely. The areas are located along the horizon and where the sky meets the tree branches c.l. Scattered small dots to the sky.
