Casimer Clayton Griswold (American, 1834-1918)
Oil on pulpboard
Gift of George R. Barse 1945.104
This lovely little vista has languished in storage due to its condition and the lack of an appropriate frame. With your help, we’d love to get it into the galleries! All that’s required is a removal of the dirty, sticky, yellowed varnish and heavy black grime layer that covers the entire surface of the painting. That alone will do wonders to spiff up the color and the depth of the landscape. Our in-house framemaker will then create a period-appropriate “home” for the painting.
