Condition/Notes : Quite good. The oil on board study of a Welsh mountain landscape with a bridge over a river as the focal point is in quite good condition but will benefit from a light clean. There is stabilized craqueleur throughout but it is particularly noticeable in the lighter sky areas although it does not detract from the enjoyment of the painting. The medium is not affected by this and there is no paint loss. This effect is to be expected in an oil painting of this age. The painting has been lightly varnished and this has slightly darkened due to age. The painting is signed verso "A. Edwards Pinxit 1843". The old wooden frame is in poor condition with scuffing and scratching to the edges but solid and serves the purpose. The board base is secured with old headless nails. The artists signature is scratched onto the surface in the upper lh corner reading "A. Edwards Pinxit 1843" (pinxit the old English/Latin word for painter) and there is an impression to the right "Brown" with an obscure word below. (See the image below). Hanging cord attached. This is an interesting 19th Century work which will benefit from further research. Please view the images below :
