Description: We offer an endearing folk painting in charcoal of what very closely resembles the lower Hudson River Valley, presumably near Cold Spring or the dramatic cliffs of the Palisades. It is 9 ¼” x 11 ½” in a period oak frame with gilt liner, 16 ½” x 18 ½”. These drawings were made on prepared paper that was painted and sprinkled with marble dust, lending them an eerie glittery effect. The drawing is unsigned, likely adapted from a print source (like Barlett) and made by an artistically inclined layperson in the mid-nineteenth century. FA00149.
