Guest Book
An oil on canvas in a naive style of a line of deer walking along a gentle hill toward the top of a larger hill with the sunset and distant view of the other side of the valley. The painting was found in Shenandoah Valley though no record of, “A. Taylor” has been found. The tone of the painting is warm. While there are no give away clues as to the age between the late 19th or the early 20th century, it has a feel of being in the earlier part of that range rather than the later. It is 14 by 28 inches and with the frame 17 ½ by31 ½ inches.

Condition; very good original condition with no damage. The frame is later than the painting.

The artist was almost certainly untrained, but shows a good sense of proportion, color and the ability to create a mood.
