Well known artist and great subject, this is a original painting by Jordan Abeshouse titled "Roadside Icehouse" Best Post Rd A, Guilford Ct. I think it is a watercolor with white wash not positive it's a mixed media. It has the name of the piece and a card on the back with all the info written by him. I have the frames it came in it's a lavender colored wood frame that does nothing for the alert at all, Selling without the frame to save on shipping and chance glass will break and damage art. I can if you want to pay the extra postage for it. Auction estimates are $500-$800 on this one it one of his earlier pieces judging by the age of the paper I would say 1950's. I have 1 more it a little bit newer than this one of a Depot. Check it out in my store.
13 1/2" x 11" cardboard canvas 15" x 17" matted. No damage it was under glass.
