An oil on beveled mahogany panel. Depicting a mother and young boy walking along a forest pathway. Artist's signature to the lower left with impressed seal to the lower right and upper right. Frame measures H 19" x 22.5". From the Remick Estate of Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan.
Retains its original varnish and shows no evidence of restoration or overpaint when viewed under both UV and natural light. At one time, this work was likely in a smaller frame and it retains minor frame scuffs and losses in a 1/2" band along perimeter (from previous frame), minor accretions to surface, moderate edge wear to frame.
