This is a very sweet miniature landscape, oil on academy board, 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches, c. 1870, in a lemon gold frame. Although this painting is unsigned, it is quite delicately painted, apparently by a very competent hand.
This pencil drawing by Dexter Dawes measures 8 3/8 x 11 inches, done on a gray, medium weight drawing paper. Dawes summered in Marlboro, NH, with its majestic views of Mt. Monadnock, where many of his inspirations for his drawings, paintings and lithographs came from.
