Charles C. Barrows (Ohio, 1833-1863) oil on canvas mountain landscape, likely the White Mountains, New Hampshire, depicting a large tree and river in the foreground with cows and a farmstead mid-ground and mountains in the background. Inscribed to stretcher "LM [Bon]ham Kirkwood." A note en verso partially reads, "This picture purchased from the Bonham estate in 1942...[Burrows] showed so great ability that several prominent Oxford [Ohio] citizens,...among them Mr. L.N. Bonham...made it possible for him to paint the White Mountains...Burrows, who lived only to the age of thirty, enlisted in the Civil War and was detailed by General Rosecrans to sketch the county around Chattanooga. Some of his sketches were published by Harper's Weekly." Also see newspaper article at the end of the photograph sequence, a photocopy of which is included with this lot. The article includes a reprint of an 1869 Oxford Citizen article plus additional text from c. 1976. Unsigned and housed in a carved gilt wood frame. Sight: 12 1/2" H x 23 5/8" W.  Framed: 16 3/8" H x 27 1/2" W. Note: Barrows is listed in "Jacobsen’s Biographical Index of American Artists: Artists Native to the United States or Working in the United States from 1606 to 2002," compiled and edited by Anita Jacobsen.


Painting with overall very light craquelure and light grime. Frame with minor abrasions, mostly to the right side and corners.
