This is quite a beautiful oil on canvas board painting. Signed and dated John H. Witt, 1865, lower right. Witt was an American painter born in 1840 and died in 1901. The painting is a portrait of a lovely child, nicely executed and finely detailed. The piece is in a gesso frame, slightly later I believe, under glass, and has been trimmed to fit into this frame. The back of the piece retains a Z. L. White Columbus O. framing tag. I see no repairs or in painting to the piece. Approximate size is 14 wide and 17 tall.
