Louis Michel Eilshemius (American, 1864-1941)
Two Works: Nude on a Riverbank and Sweeping Landscape
Nude signed "Eilshemius" lower left, Landscape signed "Elshemius" lower right.
Oil on paper mounted to board, each 8 1/2 x 17 3/4 in. (21.5 x 45.0 cm),framed.
Condition: Tack holes near edges, losses near edges, retouch, craquelure to some areas of impasto, surface grime.
N.B. Eilshemius was flexible in the spelling of his last name, sometimes dropping one or both of the I's in his signature.
Framed dimensions: each 14 1/2 x 23 3/4 in.
Looking at the reclining nude under UV, the fluorescence could simply be dirt rather than retouch.
