This painting was painted by an artist about 1844 and 1845 in Traverse City, Michigan, USA. The painting was not stored properly and the artist's name along with some other parts of the painting dryed out and chipped off so there's now way to tell who painted it. My mother has seen similiar paintings on the Antiques Road Show but she is 90 years old and doesn't remember who painted these similiar paintings. This oil portrait is of my Mother's grandmother or great grandmother and we would love to find out more about it and the artist who painted it. Thank you for your help.
