Original watercolour painting of a view of Bristol bridge by artist Carol Frarey (1931 - ).
It was painted in 1987 and is a nice piece of social history.
Carol ,who is now retired says of her career "Art has been my greatest interest since a very early age; unfortunately my parents decided an academic career offered the best future although they did allow me to study for a year at the Chelsea Art School.
It was not until 1978 when family commitments allowed me to take up painting seriously. I was living at the time in Saffron Walden Essex and exhibited in local galleries and had several private exhibitions in the Library there. I also exhibited in London’s Royal Exchange and the Banqueting Hall, Whitehall and for many years was an artist member of the Fine Art Trade Guild.
I moved to the West Country in 1982 and became a member of the Hilliard Society of Miniaturists exhibiting in the Bishop’s Palace Wells. There were further private exhibitions including galleries in Bristol, Bath and Weston super Mare. Together with 4 other artists we formed QuinArt, an exhibiting group holding several exhibitions each year at Montacute House, Barrington Court and East Lambrook Manor."
The outside of the frame measures 43cm x 41cm and the watercolour measures 25cm x 22cm.
The frame has a couple of marks and some of the wood in the gilded part around the edge has been chipped away (please see photos).
