William Louis Sonntag (American, 1822-1900)

Landscape with Waterfall
Signed indistinctly l.r.
Oil on canvas, 15 x 25 1/8 in. (38.2 x 63.8 cm), framed.
Condition: Patch reinforcements, retouch, craquelure, mild surface grime.
Estimate $3,000-5,000

Dots of retouch, perhaps about 1/2 inch diameter, corresponding to patch reinforcements on the reverse, located in the cliff to the right of the lower waterfall and also in the right foreground just above and to the left of the front-most rock outcropping. Some retouch along left edge probably to cover old frame abrasion. A few scattered dots of retouch to the sky.
