(American 1870-1950)brWinter LandscapebrOil on canvas.br30 x 36 inches Frame: 34 x 40 inches.brSigned lower left: Edward K. Williams annotated verso Paint not very dry / May 22, 1938.brCONDITION: In overall good condition the canvas is not relined but there is a masonite board attached to the back of the frame to protect the back of the canvas. Due to the heavy impasto paint there are areas of chipping throughout, along the edges on both the right and left as well as in the tree top, the chipping looks to have happened at the time of painting during the drying process (as often happens with such thickly applied paint). It is noted on the back of the board verso: Paint not very Dry / May 22, 1938. When examined under black light the chipped areas do glow, but the rest of the canvas including the signature do not. There is no evidence of restoration or crushed impasto the original texture and application of paint is in tact and in good condition. br
