Arabian portrait study, watercolour on card, unsigned. Framed and glazed.
Dimensions : Frame : 328mm x 295mm 22mm. Image : 172mm x 139mm.
Condition/Notes : The painting is in good condition with good colour. There is no sign of foxing or moisture. The study is quite detailed and has a desert background. Pencil outlines of the original drawing can be seen in places. The painting is displayed within the original bronze and turquoise mount which has toning to the window's cut edges. There is also slight toning to the painting's edges adjacent to the mount. The turquoise area of the mount has some staining in places and varying degrees of toning and plashes of bronze in places but this complements the watercolour painting. Unfortunately, there is no visible signature to the work. The gilt moulded frame is sturdy but there are some areas of moulded decoration loss on the corners. The back of the wooden frame has the remnants of a backing paper sheet which has been removed at some time revealing back of the painting attached to the mountboard. There is pencil handscript on the base which states "14.466 Bronze mount ......? English client" See the images below. The mount board is fixed by old headless nails. Rings and cord attached.
