George Lafayette Clough

1824-1901
Auburn N.Y. Hudson River Painter

This is an original oil on canvas, laid to board painting by Auburn N.Y. artist George Lafayette Clough.  This painting measures 12X15 inches and is housed in a period fluted cove frame.  The painting was identified by an early label on the back.  There is  possibly  an obscured partial signature lower left.  But we are selling this work as unsigned.   This painting is clean and bright with a dramatic view of the river with a small town in the distance.    His use of contrasts in his cloud studies  are very distinct to this artist. . We feel this painting dates from the 1870-1890's.  A very fine example of the Hudson RIver Style of American painting from the late 19th century.
