Description:

Max Kuehne (American, 1880-1968)

Rockport Harbor
Signed "Kuehne" l.r.
Oil on Masonite, 27 1/2 x 36 in. (69.5 x 91.0 cm), in an original Kuehne frame.
Condition: Minor retouch; frame with some surface losses.
Estimate $15,000-25,000

Small area of retouch 5/8 inches across located at the hilltop to the right of the church tower. Some other old retouch u.c. at the frame edge, probably to cover old frame abrasion, which fluoresces only subtly and was probably done some time ago. Other areas with what appears to be natural pigment fluorescence, corresponding in most cases to the paint with a somewhat pearlescent sheen (when viewed in ordinary light).
