Kensett Original?
Ethan Cooper (06/19/2008)
I have a painting of the Hudson, looking north, with West Point to the left of the picture. Who can I contact to varify that this is an authentic original painting by Kensett? Incidentally, I have not see any reproductions of this piece on any of the site that offer reproductions of Kensett's work, thus I am more certain of its original quality. Thanks

I ask a question early and I wrote the wrong statment down on the back of the Kensett painting on wood it only says " I certify this is an original study by J.F. Kensett. Than it is signed by David Johnson .It did not state it hung in the school . sorry. On the front of the frame it has a tag that says, J.F.Kensett . NA
