This is an Estate Fresh old oil on board painting in what is really a fantastic frame! The painting falls under the folk art category to me as it is rather naïve and quite novice looking, to me anyway. The man or boy on horseback along the lake or river is a bit crude as he looks to be heading out on a great adventure or just out for a ride.
So too is the bridge and that sun with its reflection to the water - could be the moon as well, you pick. Its certainly an interesting piece and it is what I believe to be in its original frame. Everything looks right, even the old early wire nails with flat heads. The frame itself is really good in what I believe to be the original finish. I see only a small tiny nick to the gesso along one long side, the top currently.And understandably the corners have tiny light dings to them as well but all this near impossible to see. The frame is 14.75" tall and 20.75" wide.
The actual opening of the back is 11 1/8 x 17 1/16. My descriptions are solely there to assist buyers finding the items and are not a guaranteed accurate description of the item in all cases.
