Thence by descent in the family to the current owner.
Hugh Bolton Jones was a cousin of Mrs. Kathleen S. Chace (nee Kathleen Stirling Fletcher); both were raised in Maryland and eventually settled in New York. Ultimately, Jones divided his time between New York City and a summer cottage in South Egremont, MA, where the present work, as well as many others, were painted.
Sold for $6,250
Wax lining, stretchers not original. Light surface grime and slightly yellowed varnish; would benefit from a cleaning. Very little evidence of inpaint under UV exam aside from two small 1/2 inch wide strokes of inpaint in the sky and a few additional minuscule touches. No inpaint apparent in the main body of the composition. Slight frame rubbing at upper edge.
