The present painting is to be included in Phyllis Braff''s and Stephen L. Good''s forthcoming catalogue raisonné of works by Thomas Moran.
The relined canvas in fair to good overall condition, with prominent craquelure throughout. Under u.v. light, some of the areas of the canvas with dark pigment, including the sky at upper center and part of the landscape at far right appear dark under u.v. light due to pigments used, and not due to restoration, in our opinion. Otherwise the painting has some generally very minor scattered retouch.
Frame: 32 x 48 x 3 1/2 in.
