Painting

A Sunlit Path
1837-1908, American

Oil on canvas, 20 x 14 inches in a 25 by 18 1/2 gold period frame. Because this has only a partial signature we are only able to attribute this work to Alfred Bricher. Upon cleaning of the painting, a partial signature was revealed in the lower left. The technique and composition also is very similar to many well known works by this artist. There is an area at the lower edge of this painting which has been inpainted but not the signature...The frame appears to be the original one. We feel the setting of this work might be from Lake George N.Y.

Print

Ye Compleat Angler
1818-1910, British

This is a very rare pencil signed etching by Sir Francis Seymour Haden; it is an early proof, from before the edition published in Hamerton's 1880 'Etching and Etchers'. The image size is 5 1/2 x 7 7/8 inches, 1877, cat: Schneiderman-161, plate signed and dated, pencil signed, a very rich impression on a laid type paper, framed. Sir Francis Seymour Haden was one of the most important British etchers of the 19th century, along with his brother in law James Whistler. In addition to being a highly regarded artist he was a successful surgeon, accomplished author and dedicated angler.
