Lot No. 0463

Manufacturer: William A. McCord

Artist: William Alexander McCord

Description: Oil on canvas landscape painting either done by William Alexander McCord (died 1918) or George McCord (1848-1909) in the late 19th century. Pictured is a small house on the sea coast surrounded by windblown pine trees. Signed “McCord Cin.” in the lower left hand corner. Sight size is 19 1/2 by 29 1/2 inches. With frame 25 1/2 by 35 1/2 inches. Generally good overall condition with minor inpainting in the sky and some heavy craqueleur. The style of the painting is more in keeping with that of George McCord but the signature is not typical. Since William A. McCord was from Cincinnati, we are inclined to believe this is his work.

Size: 19 1/2 by 29 1/2

Estimate: $500.00 - $700.00
