Original, antique English watercolour, On The Conway, 1879, indistinctly signed. Collectable, historic work.
Original, antique English watercolour, On The Conway, in North Wales, painted in 1879, and indistinctly signed ‘L’ or ‘F’ ‘E’.
This is a lovely original work, a rural scene, gentle colours from a hand of great artistic competence. The painting has a few brown age spots which are shown here, otherwise good original condition. It is well framed under clear acrylic; clear acrylic is indistinguishable from glass to the naked eye but allows for safer shipping and less weight when hanging.
A note about pricing
We always try and give value and ask for fair prices for what we offer, we spend a lot of time restoring frames, cleaning and researching, but the world of art remains an enigma, we have works from many artists who sell from £200-£20,000, why such a huge difference for the same artist? If I can quote Dr Pablo Lugo, the Art Curator who we work with, ‘the artist makes a contract with society’, and then we, society, decide what that artist is worth, does he or she give us a story? Does their work delight? Will an investment in their efforts give us a return? Ultimately it of course depends on the joy you enjoy, as the owner. All the works that we offer are unique, a moment in time captured forever and we sincerely hope that they bring you great pleasure and value.
