This is a very famous Original Watercolor by the famous New England Artist JOSEPH CLAGHORN (1869-1934)Handsigned. My motherinlaw purchased this painting in 1930 from a Gallery in New York City. On the back of the painting the Dealer Verso reads"J. Assenhein Importers - 37 New St-New York Original Watercolor "Summer in the Valley" (See attached photo on back). My husband and I inherited it in 1978 and took it to an upscale framer in Monterey CA for reframing. Due to the value he sent it to New York who carefully removed it and framed it in its current elegant frame (at a cost of $890.00)It has hung in our non smoking home and shielded from direct sunlight maintaining its original condition.
JC Claghorn became very famous and the measure of hi achievement included exhibits in prestige salons of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arta, the National Art Club, Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC Natl Portrait Gallery . He was inspired to paint this beautiful painting and others of its kind while residing in his summer home in Maryland for many years.Its people, environment and homesteads became tie subject matter for works which would be regarded as the artists' most significant scenes depicting agriculture, vignettes and rural pleasures,
