THIS ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR

IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION



THE ARTIST IS WELL DOCUMENTED AND CAN BE LOOKED UP VIA THE INTERNET.

MEDIUM IS WATERCOLOUR WITH UNDERLINING TRACES OF PENCIL

THE BACKGROUND BEHIND THE IMAGE HAS AT SOMETIME BEEN WASHED OVER, PERHAPS TO HIDE FOXING?

THERE ARE TRACES OF “GUM ARABIC” ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT HAND CORNER (SEE PHOTO)



LOOKING AT THE REVERSE OF THE PAINTING, IT WAS ORIGINALLY GUM TAPED TO THE ARCHED BASE METAL MOUNT. THIS DID NOT LAST SO THE INTERNAL WOOD TILES WERE CREATED.



THE FRAME IS CAST IN SOLID BRASS, THE MOUNT IS BASE METAL.

THE FRAME HAS BEEN COLOURED WASHED OVER ON THE FRONT BUT THIS HAS NOT COVERED THE ENTIRE SURFACE AND YOU CAN SEE AREAS WHERE THE BRASS IS SHOWING THROUGH.



THE FRAME ITSELF IS VERY UNIQUE AND COULD BE SOLD SEPARATELY.
