"A.C. Goodwin" lower left, This painting is framed in a modern gold frame.  "Goodwin was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and was raised in Chelsea Massachusetts. He did not begin painting until the age of thirty and became a self-taught Impressionist and also a follower of the Ashcan School led by Robert Henri. After painting in Boston in both oil and pastel for a twenty-year period, Goodwin gained the recognition of famous art figures including John Singer Sargent, Mrs. Jack Gardner, and John T. Spaulding.  Childe Hassam was quoted as describing Goodwin as "the greatest painter in  Boston.  In 1921, he left Boston for New York City and had a studio on Washington Square where he "developed a reputation as one of the few American Impressionists to prefer urban subjects" (Spanierman) including bridges, parks and avenues. He and his wife then lived in Chatham, New York where he painted many landscapes. In 1929, he returned to Boston and resumed his Bohemian lifestyle. "

This is an early unsigned oil on canvas painting of a Brother and Sister.  We would date this to the first quarter of the nineteenth century.  The style is very familar, similar to Chandler or Amni Phillips but we cannot determine who actually painted this portrait.  The painting measures 36X29 inches.  There is a New York canvas stamp on the back, the painting has a couple of early repairs but nothing major, the work could use a reline and a couple of small spots of touch up.  The frame, of the period does have a few chips and losses but overall the painting has a great look just as it now appears.
