Description:

British School, 19th Century

Harbor View with Ships
Signed "R Witherspoon" l.l.
Oil on canvas, 15 1/4 x 23 1/2 in. (38.7 x 59.7 cm), framed.
Condition: Two minor punctures, surface grime, craquelure.
Estimate $800-1,200

The craquelure is stable and is most visible as stretcher bar marks. The varnish is inconsistent and the work needs cleaning. The larger of the two punctures is to the hull of the second largest vessel and is about 1/8 inch across. The smaller one is to the left of the mast of the same vessel and is like two contiguous pinpricks..
