American School, 19th Century

Pair of Hudson River School Landscapes. One signed "R.S. Gi..." l.r. Oil on canvas, 21 1/2 x 36 in., framed. Condition: Lined, craquelure, scattered small paint losses including one in the middle of the signature, varnish discoloration, surface grime.

N.B. Although the style of the signature is not a good match, the letters that are visible and the style of the paintings themselves could suggest Robert Swain Gifford (American, 1840-1905).
