Along the top edge and down the right it looks as though someone used rubber cement to repair it. It could be easily removed but I will leave that to the new owner's restorer. You can see it there but it doesnt necessarily need to be removed to be displayed as a beautiful 19th Century landscape. Original frame looks as though the painting has never been removed from it.
Original nailed wood holders are in back. There is some loss to the frame. Frame measures 16 x 20 inches.
For those not familiar with the artist, his biography from askart reads: Professor Lemuel L. Lowell was a resident of Watertown, New York for 56 years. He was born in Litchfield, Herkimer County, New York on September 18, 1837.He later moved to Frankfort, a suburb of Utica. When Lowell was only 12 years old, he created his first painting. Having a natural leaning toward painting and the life of an artist, he traveled to New York City to study art. His studies were interrupted by the Civil War, though his service was brief due to a discharge for disability. In 1865 he opened a studio in the Paddock Arcade, Watertown, New York where he was an instructor of both music and art.
He considered his continued study of nature as the source of his inspiration. His ideal was to reproduce the soft, smooth effects of light within his landscape paintings.He expressed a disapproval of the impressionist style of painting. Lowell died in Watertown, New York on June 12, 1914. The Watertown Herald - April 30, 1892 - Saturday Watertown has reason to be proud of its home artist, Prof.
