George Cochran Lambdin (American, 1830-1896)

Roses and Butterfly Against a Blue Background
Signed "Geo. C. Lambdin" l.l.
Oil on canvas, 24 x 18 in. (61.0 x 46.0 cm),framed.

Estimate $4,000-6,000

Framed dimensions are 28 x 21 7/8 x 2 3/4 in

Minimal abrasion to l.c. edge. Some fluorescence in the area of the signature, which is slightly blurry as if overwritten, suggesting that it has been reinforced either by the artist or by a later hand, in contrasting colors. The painting has been professionally conserved, with retouch primarily to the background and with a scattering of small spots and one fine diagonal line of retouch in the greenery at lower center, and an area of wax reinforcement or similar on the reverse.
