December 4, 2016
Philadelphia, PA, USALive Auction
Signed ''Jane Peterson'' bottom right, oil on canvas
24 1/8 x 18 1/8 in. (61.3 x 46cm)
Private Collection, Maryland.
The unlined canvas framed under glass in excellent original condition. Under u.v. light, the light brown top of tower, and a small area to its left, appear darker under u.v. light. The light brown at top of tower is unrestored: its appearance under u.v. light is due to the nature of the pigment and is not restoration. The small area to the left of the top of tower appears to be either dirt, or possibly a small amount of foreign material under the glass. It does not appear to be restoration. The painting has not been examined from out of its frame, and from under the glass. We therefore view the painting as being unrestored.
Frame: 27 3/4 x 25 7/8 x 1 5/8 in.
