A circa 1920 painting of a waterfall emerging from a steep cliff above a gorge, signed at lower right by artist S. P. Christesen. I do not see a listing for an artist by this name, or Christensen, but clearly he/she was talented. The scene would appear to be western American, though I recently viewed photos of the noted Montmorency Falls in Quebec, Canada, and there is a strong resemblance to this scene. A hint to the origin may be on the reverse, where "Fab-Rik-O-Na" is printed on the burlap canvas. Internet research shows that to have been the product of a northern New Jersey firm in the teens and twenties, which manufactured canvas, burlap canvas, and decorative wall coverings. The 18" by 35" work is unframed.
