The painting is in the style of J.K. Morgan although the artist usually signs with the initials J.K.M.. Further research is being carried out to determine the artist and any results will be updated.
Condition/Notes : The painting is in good condition. The colours are strong but there is some toning areas to the sky above the centre house and the tree to the left. There is no foxing or moisture ingress. The original pencil sketch can be seen in the pathway and around the buildings. The lettering and date 1707 on the lh building is of interest. The monogram is in the lh corner. The painting is displayed within an original off-white mount which has toning around the edges and varying dusting in places. The cut window edges are browned. The mount appears to be original. The oak frame is in good condition except for a small chip 65mm down from the upper rh corner on the inside edge. The glazing is clear and undamaged. The back of the frame is covered with a card backing board held in place by old pins and sealed with 1-1/2" old gummed faming tape. Two rings are fitted to the board and hanging cord. The frame does not appear to have been opened. Overall, an interesting and pleasant watercolour of the English School (Victorian period).
