Signed "W.F. Jackson" l.l.
Oil on canvas mounted to pressed paperboard, 9 3/4 x 13 7/8 in. (25.0 x 35.0 cm),framed.
Condition: Signature probably reinforced or added later, surface grime, canvas separating from the mount.

The canvas has separated from the pressed paperboard mounting for about 4-5 inches along the top and bottom edges measured from the left corners. The adhesive used to mount the canvas appears to have been very light. There is a small uneven cut at the edge of the canvas and paperboard support located in the u.l. corner. Signature fluoresces.
