Description:

William Jurian Kaula (American, 1871-1953)

Autumn in Wilton
Unsigned, identified on an unattributed label, likely in the artist's hand, affixed to the stretcher.
Oil on canvas, 24 x 29 in. (61.0 x 73.5 cm), framed.
Condition: Craquelure, surface grime.
Estimate $1,200-1,800

Label from M/E Framing Guild, New York, on the back of the frame.

The unattributed label appears to be an exhibition label, but the top line, which might have provided the exhbition name, has been trimmed off. The address given for the artist is Fenway Studios, Boston, Massachusetts. The craquelure is stable and slightly more prevalent to the upper left quadrant. The work would benefit from cleaning.
