JOHN WILLIAM HILL
HORSE CART ALONG THE RIVER
Signed ''J.W. Hill'' bottom left, watercolor on paper laid to card
11 3/4 x 18 in. (29.8 x 45.7cm)
From the Estate of former Pennsylvania Governor William W. Scranton and First Lady Mary L. Scranton.
Framed and matted, this watercolor is in generally good condition. The outer bottom and outer right edges of the sheet have thin brown lines of toning from the overmat. The sheet itself is laid down to card. At some point, it is conceivable that the colors of the watercolor may or may not have been a bit lighter and brighter. In part of the water at lower center and lower center right, there is very slight color variation and very slight texture variation, potentially indicative of some repainting.
Frame: 19 1/4 x 25 1/4 x 1 in.
