I wish I could figure out who this super-talented artist of the 1800's "Mort R.", was. He painted this gorgeous swamp scene in 1872, but his signature did not include his last name and so we don't know who he was! At any rate, if you have ever visited Louisiana, or the Carolina coast, or even parts of Texas, you will understand how beautifully the artist has captured the special light coming up over a swamp early in the morning. A pirogue has been pulled up at the edge of a small island. The sun is just peeking over the horizon, gently shedding its subtle light. Comes in an exquisite gilt and plaster 19th century frame, with a few repairs but overall in very good shape for its age and delicateness.
Dimensions are 34.75" x 45.5" framed, 24.5" x 35.25" unframed.
