Hudson River Miniature
19th Century, American

This is a beautifully painted miniature landscape in the Hudson River School style, oil on academy board, 3 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches, c. 1883, unsigned, in an original Doll & Richards frame, with a label on the back. Although this painting is unsigned and we have not been able to identify an artist, it is very well painted with rich colors and remarkable, minute details.
