This lot is accompanied by a typed biography of the artist complete with an undated hand-written note at the bottom from the artist himself, reading: "Hudson River" / I painted this near Tarrytown, New York. An artist will find just about everything he would care to paint in landscape here. I spent about two months in this country between Tarrytown and Albany, painting and taking colored photographs. / Ernest Fredericks
A faint vertical scratch to canvas, 3.25 in. long, located towards the center right portion of the painting. Some surface grime. Minor wear to frame. The note has a few tears and losses along edges and in corners and the paper shows even toning.
