New York/New Jersey/Denmark, 1850-1921

Steam yacht Aguan at sea.

Oil on canvas, 22" x 36". Framed 25.25" x 39.5".
Condition: Under white light the surface of the canvas is dirty and there are some areas of craquelure that are unstable and some flaking along the bottom that will require conservation. The canvas is lined and under UV examination there is scattered minor in-paint to the sky and along the right edge from frame wear.
