RARE Antique 19th c. Early California Plein Air Oil Painting Von Keith 1900

This is a beautiful and RARE Antique 19th c. Early California Plein Air Impressionist Landscape Oil Painting on canvas, by the enigmatic and talented California artist John H.

This work depicts a lovely and tranquil lakeside scene with rocky outcroppings, calm waters, mountains in the distance, and a charmingly depicted flock of ducks in the lower right foreground. This work is signed and dated: J. Von Keith 1900 in the lower right corner. Von Keith's works are very rare and have seldom been offered for sale.

Despite his prolific career as an itinerate landscape artist across California, less than five of these paintings are known to still exist. Approximately 26 x 40 1/2 inches including frame. Actual artwork is approximately 21 7/8 x 36 1/2 inches. Overall good - fair condition for 120+ years of age, with several small tears to the upper right of the canvas, areas of yellowing varnish or nicotine residue, and fine craquelure in some places please see photos. Original period gilded frame has scuffing, edge wear, and some material loss along the edges. One of the stretcher bars has a mild fissure and would it benefit the preservation of this piece if it was replaced (photo 11). This painting would be a worthy candidate for a professional restoration, due to its beauty, rarity, and historical importance as an image of early California.
