Notes

An early picture, painted about 1883-84. The picture has been cut down as the paint surface extends around the stretcher revealing cut edges. It is reminiscent of some of the work of Frank Buchser (1828-90) an artist who went to the United States at the time of the American Civil War.  It had three patched holes as at July 2010.
