Levi Wells Prentice (American, 1851-1935) View of the Adirondacks Signed and dated "L. W. Prentice 1877" l.r., identified on a label from Vose Galleries, Boston, on the reverse. Oil on canvas mounted to Masonite, 30 x 48 in. (76.2 x 121.9 cm), framed. Condition: Retouch, skinning, craquelure, surface grime. N.B. Prentice was a self-taught painter who grew up in the Adirondack Mountain region, and was working in Syracuse as a landscape painter by 1872. His work is characterized by small and careful brushwork where, despite pictorial depth, the details of both foreground and background are simultaneously in focus. The autumn scene depicted is meditatively still, and this calm mood is reflected in the stag poised in the foreground.
