Redfield”, lower left, and dated 1907 in pencil on the stretcher, is an authentic work by Edward W. Redfield, and will be included in my forthcoming catalogue raisonne on the artist. Both the signature and the date are apocryphal. This painting should be dated circa 1898. I have seen several 1890’s Redfield paintings with apocryphal signatures and dates. The painting probably depicts the canal near New Hope, Pennsylvania. A canal boat with a shadowy figure is on the viewer’s center right, and there are two other shadowy figures walking further down the towpath (center left). The painting is painted with spring colors. The painting comes with a period frame, with name plate “E.W. Redfield”. Yours truly, Thomas C. Folk”. SIZE: 16” x 22”.
