DescriptionA marvellous palette filled with subdued blues and rich umbers is used to depict a truly sublime portrayal of the picturesque landscape of Connemara, Ireland. The artwork itself is inscribed along the top edge and signed in the bottom left-hand corner. On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. There is some residue around the edges from a previous mount.
