Waterscape with Bridge, Davis c1860 Oil on Canvas
Moody and atmospheric, this original oil painting is signed Davis. The frame is original and ornate. The painting is a serene scene of water with a bridge crossing over. Trees in autumn colors surround the water. The branches show that a wind is blowing through; the brushstrokes offer a fluidity of movement that is effective. The painting could stand a gentle cleaning. The molded plaster frame is gilt. There are a few small surface losses to it. A lovely, gentle painting. 17 1/4" X 14 1/2" X 3"
