41x50 oil painting when I received this painting it was still on the form that it was painted on I had it cleaned and framed! I have had it for over 20years. My Dads 1st cousin was a Dr in orlando fl and he purchased it for his pent house he passed and I have had it since. The painting has no signature because it was not finished

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a late 19th century dutch style landscape painting, depicting contrymen in a forest with two ponds to the right. The painting is not signed. The softwood stretcher and the rather white canvas would be impossible for a painting of the century you were expecting it to date from. The canvas tends to react with the paint and air, over a longer period of time the colour turns from white to light brown. This is not the case here. The protective cover on the back might have conserved the canvas. The canvas was nailed to the stretcher and later stapled by a restorer. The estimate is based on similar paintings by lesser known artists sold at auction.
