Auction: American & European Works of Art - 3100B Location: Boston Date / Time: May 11, 2018 10:00AM


Edmund Henry Osthaus (American, 1858-1928)

Alpine Vista
Signed and inscribed indistinctly "Edm Osthaus/..." l.l.
Oil on canvas, 35 x 46 1/2 in. (89.0 x 118.0 cm), framed.
Condition: Patch reinforcements, minor retouch, craquelure, surface grime.
Estimate $5,000-7,000

The inscription under the artist's signature may read "Oshkosh." There are four reinforced/repaired punctures, plus a tiny fifth untouched puncture with minute losses. There are thin glazes of retouch in addition to the repairs. The craquelure is visible but stable. The work might benefit from a cleaning.
