John Joseph Enneking (American, 1841-1916)
Signed and dated "Enneking 1905" l.r.
Oil on canvas, 22 x 30 in. (55.9 x 76.2 cm), framed.
Condition: Wax lined, stretcher replaced, retouch, craquelure, lifting, frame abrasions, scattered small paint losses.
The lining is adhered with wax, and a solid support (perhaps aluminum) is sandwiched between the old and new canvases. There are several tiny losses, some of which (in the sky) have been retouched. The craquelure is prevalent but seems stable at present.
