Unfortunately, this is a textured print of an oil painting. If you look closely with a magnifying glass, you will see pixels or dots like newspaper print. This was printed on textured board to appear to be hand painted. This is after an oil on canvas painting by James E. Meadows (1828 - 1888).
James Edward Meadows was born in Mountnessing in Essex. (He is often listed as James Edwin but official documents confirm James Edward.) He was the son of marine painter James Meadows, Sr. (1798-1864). The second of five sons, he was not the only artist. His brother Edwin Lewis was also a landscape artist, Alfred John was an artist, actor and scene painter, William was a sculptor and painter and Arthur Joseph (1843-1907) was an artist who specialized in Venetian and Mediterranean subjects. James Edward is known as a landscape and marine painter.
This would have a decorative value of $100-150.
