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.

When I had it cleaned I also had it framed so the stretcher is no longer on the pic!!

If it doesn´t cause too much trouble I would like to see the fabric. Or has the canvas been glued on board? Thank you

simply follow the instructions and upload the photos. All this trouble would really help to determin the timeframe. Is the canvas nailed to the stretcher or is it stapled?

I sent 4 more pics it is nailed and stapled
