The painting has a Thomas Wilmurt frame which appears to be original.

Willcox moved from Brooklyn to Philadelphia in 1850, lived in Germantown, and exhibited regularly at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1852 to 1868 and from 1880 to 1917. 

 

Willcox’s style was quite similar to that of his colleague and friend, William Trost Richards.  The two artists often worked together and corresponded frequently on subject matter.

 

This view of Atlantic City exemplifies Willcox's penchant for panoramic landscapes.
