Oil on canvas. 60"x35". Apparently unsigned and unmarked. Label on back "Bowden Bros., London." Moderate cracking and flaking. No holes or tears. No frame. Apparently underwent prior restoration; canvas backing added (seems old, loose weave), and staples used on canvas. Maybe re-varnished too. Painting is dark and dirty.
