George Washington Nicholson (1832-1912) Landscape - Oil On Canvas
A landscape painted by George Washington Nicholson dating back to the mid to late 1800s.
George Washington Nicholson was born near Salem, New Jersey in 1832. As a boy Nicholson lived in Mannington Township. By the age of 17 he was apprenticed to a house painter named Daniel Woodruff in Salem. According to family tradition, he was encouraged in his artistic pursuits by his oldest sister, Rachel, and probably began painting in the 1850s.
The painting was rescued from a neglected home approximately the same age as the painting itself. It looks to have had attempted repairs but never complete.
The painting is priced gently due to flaws. It could be a great bargain for collectors of American landscape art or a project for an aspiring conservator.
