(Canadian / American 1873-1939)brLandscape New YorkbrOil on canvas laid on board.br30 x 40 inches.brSigned and dated lower left: E. Lawson 1915.brProvenance: Exhibited in 1915 at the National Academy of Design, New York where it was purchased by Mrs. James J. Goodwin of New York. Mrs. Goodwin moved to Los Altos where the painting was housed for many years. The current owners father in law purchased the house and the paintings within. It has passed to the current owner through family descent.brCONDITION: In overall good condition, when examined under black light there is some in painting in the shadows under the bridge and in the lower right corner in the darkened water. The signature does not glow under black light, the canvas has been relined on another canvas and then laid on board, another canvas has then been applied to the back of the board to give the illusion that it is on canvas and not laid on board. Minor areas of missing paint along the edges by the frame and in the center yellow section between the trees age cracking throughout especially in the sky and in the blue building. Crushed impasto visible throughout painting due to inept restoration. Would benefit from being lightly cleaned and varnished. The frame is in good repair with no visible areas of missing molding. br
