The subject matter of this work is a landscape. There is a written title on the old backing paper that ends in Sunrise but we don't know the first part of the title. The size of the oil painting is 10 inches high by 8 inches across and the total size with the frame comes to 15 1/2 inches by 13 1/2 inches. The painting is not signed on the front from what we can see but it is identified twice on the back as being by George Charney, once in old fountain ink and the second time in pencil upper right on the old backing paper. We think the artist probably took the frame off of another painting and re-used it for this painting.
As for condition of the painting it is good to very good with no restorations. There is a very light yellow hue even over the work which could be darkening from old varnish and dust build up over the past 90 years. The frame looks like it may have been repainted as we can see a silver finish on the back of the frame and the front is a tradition light greenish brown color that was popular during the arts and crafts design era. The frame also has one small square piece of wood that has come off the front in the lower left corner.
You can also see some silver color coming through in spots from where the repainting has chipped away over the years. George Charney is listed in the published book Davenports Art Reference and Price Guide.This work is well painted with a nice impressionist technique of broad brush strokes that build on the painting's surface.
