Guest Book
According to the Brooklyn Museum, which owns one of his watercolors, his dates are 1880-1940. He was a New England artist (Falk lists him with a Worcester MA address) with some of his paintings both signed and located. This large watercolor is attached to a stiff cardboard. The sight size is 12 ¾ by 22 ½. It is signed and dated in the lower left, “George J. Tribe 1910.” The scene is of a lonely farmhouse with a smoking chimney in an empty snowy treed landscape with the sun either just rising or more likely just setting in the distance. The good and well detailed execution saves is from being melodramatic. The overall size is 20 by 28 7/8 inches.

Condition; there is some damage to the edges under the mat, with losses on the margins. It is presently matted and backed with acid free mat board and acid free foam core. The simple frame is probably not original and has some losses.
