1800's 1800 - AN ENTICING FOREST SCENE IS FEATURED IN THIS GREAT PAINTING. The emphasis is on the foreground tree, which is awash in Fall colors. Although we do not know much about Grant Rice, we know that this is an appealing work of art (we believe - but cannot prove - that Grant is the artist based on the attached paper on the back of the frame). Our understanding is that Grant Rice was also a poet (although we have not been able to verify that). This outstanding work was purchased from an estate in the 1960s by our consignor, and has been kept carefully ever since. The original art sits within an original era frame which measures about 15" x 19", and looks excellent! CONDITION: this original looks quite nice. Probably drawn in the late 1800s. We grade the art itself VERY FINE, and the frame FINE / VERY FINE. The frame has some "crazing" and seems to us to have gold leaf (we are not certain of that, but the gold color of the frame is remarkable). It would look very nice on display, and represents an historic era in American Art History. PHOTOS: we are providing five images. The first photo does a good job of showing the entire framed picture. The second shows the notation on the back indicating that Grant Rice is the artist. The third shows the back of the frame. The other two pics (which may or may not be visible depending on where you see this listing) show a corner detail, and some small damage to the back of the frame (which we feel matters very little since it would not been seen if this picture were hung on a wall). This art is a showpiece, suitable for fine collections. SHIPPING COSTS: Our Canadian and International rates are just estimates, it might cost more. For those concerned about our shipping charges, please be advised that this great work of art can be picked up in our Tampa Florida warehouse for NO shipping charge. Condition: VF
