THOMAS B. GRIFFIN (AMERICAN, 1858-1918) LANDSCAPE PAINTING OF LAKE
Signed lower-right "T.B. Griffin", original lining and likely original frame
Item # 801PVP27Z
A beautifully rendering of a lake or perhaps a large river flowing through the hills during autumn, the cloudy sky is vibrant and full of detail. The foreground is most interesting with chaotic displays of fallen woods and hints or rocks under greenery all captured with Griffin's typical heavy impasto. It remains in excellent original condition on the original lining, having been professionally cleaned and conserved in the last decade or so and remaining in presentation-ready condition. It is signed in the lower right corner and is housed in what is likely the original frame, or at least one that is of the period with a nearly identical level of oxidization in the pine secondary woods.
Measurements: 35 1/4” W x 4” D x 27” H [frame]; 24” W x 16” H [canvas]
Original lining and likely housed in the original frame. Light craquelure and some stretcher bar visibility on the sides. Under UV showing spot of touch up in lower-right (facing) beneath the fallen branch, a few spots to the sky and other minor touch ups; beautifully conserved in the last decade or so. Some gilding losses to frame, more notably along the bottom portion.
