Canvas frame is 16" x 12.5" Frame is 22.75" x 20.25" x 3 1/8. Condition is shown in the pictures. The decorative parts of the frame has lost parts due to age. The canvas/painting is still in great shape. The painting is not signed.
The painting will be carefully packed and insured. I have been studying and examining Guido Hampe, and Frederick William Hayes' work, and in my personal opinion the medium matches much closer with Guido Hampe.
The Antique Painting has been appraised. Below are some of the highlights from the appraisal. We can confirm that the artwork is an original scene and original artwork. By "original scene", I refer to a painting of a scene that has never been painted before. By "original artwork, " I refer to an artwork that has been hand painted by an artist as opposed to a print, a limited edition print, a poster, or a postcard.
While some results may show similarities, I concluded they are too unconcise to be considered relevant. In this case I can confirm the painting is an original scene and original artwork. I will continue to research the painting.
Signature Investigation In this part, I study and research the signature of the artwork. I used a larger picture of the signature and try to interpret it. Sadly, there is no signature that I can use to know who made it. However, it is impossible to demonstrate the painting was made by any of them.I check the frame construction for small details, like the type of metallic parts used, if the wood joints and cuts are irregular, or if the wood cuts were machined. That small details can help to know the age of the painting. For instance, a the frame construction that includes modern metallic pieces like flat-head nails, staples, or Phillips-head screws can be dated circa 20th Century. Older frames comprises the use of irregular wood cuts (hand made) and hand forged metallic parts.
In some cases, you can see absence of metallic parts. This is only an example for the frame construction, but I consider the type of medium used and the color palette. For this painting, I find the flat-head nails tell us the painting was made circa early 20th century.You can also see the wood grain of the frame is irregular. So I can ascertain this painting is from circa Edwardian era. There is no signature on the back or any kind of sticker or mark that could provide information about the artist.
Conclusion I think this artwork is valuable and can be interested to art collectors and decorators. We know the painting is circa early 20th Century and the artist is European (the landscape is Switzerland). The artwork is of good quality, the composition is harmonious, and the creator chose a distinctive, alluring, and warm color palette. I believe that decorators and/or collectors would be interested in this work of art.
