We have had the pleasure to own this painting for the last few years now and it has always hung proudly in our home. It is an original watercolor that is in lovely antique condition and one of the most unique pieces of art we have ever owned. The painting was cut into three panels and mounted in this wonderful frame to achieve the illusion of looking out a window of your Cape Cod ocean front home. When we bought this lovely piece it was so covered in attic dirt that you could not see that there was a painting behind the glass.With a little cleaning the three "window" panels revealed this breathtaking painting. It is signed with what looks like "Alton" but it is hard to say for certain as you will se in the photos below. The attic this piece was found in was an old general store in rural Nova Scotia with a home on the second floor and an attic above. It was an unfinished/unheated space and the original frame that you see in the photos below has suffered damage. The last three photos below are taken with the flash on so you can see that there is veneer missing and corner damage on the frame.
We re-stained the frame years ago to make areas were the veneer was missing at least the same color as the rest of the frame. It works and the piece looks wonderful hanging on the wall.Your eye is busy looking at the ocean "out the window". The frame is about 17.5" x 29.25", the center panel is 8.5" x 11.5" and each of the outside panels are 6.25" x 10". There are lots of photos of this painting below taken in different lighting conditions so you can have a good look at this fine old piece.
We believe the artist to be an American artist as the items that were found with this piece were all mid to late US items that were moved to Nova Scotia from Maine when the family moved here in the late 1800's. You will never regret owning this fine work of art. It will hang proudly in your home for years to come as it has in ours for the last few years.
