Moore Oil Painting

Lovely Victorian oil painting signed “N.A. Moore ’76″.   Nelson Augustus Moore  was a Kensington, CT artist who lived between 1824-1902.  The painting is of the ocean (probably the Connecticut shore) with a beach, rocks, trees seagulls and beautifully textured waves and clouds.  It is set in the original gilt frame with a flat gilt liner and fancy surrounding three dimensional designs.  There is no backing to the frame but it doesn’t seem like the painting has ever been removed.   A wonderful quality painting by a listed artist with a date!    Circa:   1876.    Dimensions:   25.5″ H   x   35.5″ W   x   3.5″ D (frame).   15.5″ H   x   24″ W (canvas).   Condition:  Untouched condition.  Frame has some chips with the largest one on the left outer side (see photo).  Painting is in good condition – could use a good cleaning.    Price:   $2500DSC_0278DSC_0259 DSC_0262 (1) DSC_0262 (3) DSC_0285DSC_0289 DSC_0290DSC_0274
