The pair of Orientalist watercolours depicting Egyptian Street Scenes sold at the Pyramid Society auction in the US for $12,000.00 which was a very good price and has certainly put Amy Barbaro onto the International Art scene. The question now is are there any more of her signed works out there - this sale has set a precedent.
Here are images of the two watercolours (by kind permission of The Pyramid Society) :
Reminder that the two signed Egyptian Street scenes are at auction tomorrow in US. See the link below :
