D. Jerome Elwell (American, 1847-1912)

Gloucester
Signed, titled, and dated "Elwell/Gloucester/1865" l.l.
Oil on canvas, 26 x 40 in. (66.0 x 101.6 cm), framed.
Condition: Craquelure, wax applied to area on the reverse.

Provenance: Private Massachusetts collection.
Estimate $4,000-6,000

There are small dots and dashes of retouch (primarily to the sky). There is an area of the craquelure in the middle of the composition that has some cupping and some minute areas of retouched losses to the edges of this cupping. The wax on the reverse was probably applied to stablize this area.
