F. HAROLD HAYWARD (AMER. 1861-1945), OIL ON CANVAS, LANDSCAPE, 1889, H 17", L 26" Depicting a man walking along a dirt road in a tree-lined landscape. Signed and dated '89 in lower-left corner and framed.
As viewed under blacklight in the unopened frame: 2 very small spots of overpainting just to the left of the figure. Only a very small amount of paint cracking. Old short non-obtrusive scratch in the paint to the left of the man; needs a cleaning. Not lined or patched. Gilt frame is of the period or slightly later and shows just a little 'wear' to the patina and needs a dusting. Rf
