Condition/Notes : Damaged. The watercolour and gouache on paper is in good condition regarding the painting and colour but the base has been damaged with a crack extending from the top to lower edge. The surface crack resulting from a crease runs from 100mm in from the top rh corner down to 80mm in from the lower rh corner with another crease at 60mm in from the top rh corner running down to 120mm from the top rh corner. Another crease runs from 75mm up from the lower rh corner down to 50mm in from the lower rh corner. The damage has been stabilised and providing the painting is handled carefully will not worsen. If the painting is carefully mounted the damage will be arrested and the painting will still be enjoyed without a great loss of satisfaction. The painting depicts a landscape, entitled by the artist "Scene in Lancashire, near Bolton". The artist's signature and date 1885 is in the lower rh corner. There are some light foxing spots in the sky. Verso, in the artist's ink handscript is the title and some dimensions written in ink.
