White Mountain School: NH Franconia Notch Landscape Oil c. 1870(195 views)
White Mountain School, Artist Unknown:This antique American oil painting dates from around 1870. It shows the vast wilderness landscape of Echo lake at Franconia Notch, New Hampshire, and features two sets of deer under a dramatic clouded sky.
Painted at a time when the Hudson River style of painting was dominant, it combines small details with an expansive vista of the American countryside. T
he painting has a limited color range, reflecting the time period it was painted in - before the easy availability of modern bright pigments. There is a sense of naive charm and wonderment to the entire composition, which sets the placid deer as a focal point.
Condition Report: The painting has been archivally lined, gently cleaned, retouched and coated with non-yellowing varnish. The custom-made gold-metal leafed frame is new. The back features a protective foam-board.
