Condition/Notes : Good. The watercolour on paper painting entitled "Coast Scene with Figures" depicts an Italian coastal scene with figures working on the quayside opposite the harbour entrance with a lighthouse and distant mountains. The painting is in good condition with good strong colours. There is no damage to the base but there are a few light foxing spots in the sky. The colours and scene are typical of the works of this artist and his signature, in the usual manner, is in the lower lh corner followed by the date 1882. William Leighton Leitch was born in Glasgow in 1804 and died in London in 1883 making this painting one of his last works. He was strongly influenced by his time spent in Italy (1833-37) and his love of Italian scenes stayed with him for the rest of his life. The painting is displayed within the original aged, damaged gilt mount. The gilt wooden frame is also in poor condition with losses to the decorative moulding. The frame is closed with a wooden backing board nailed to the frame with old headless nails. A traditional sheet of black backing paper is pasted over the backing board with a label attached "W.L. Leitch. Coast Scene with Figures" in ink handscript. Old screw-eyes and rings with wire attached. Unless particularly wanted, suggest that the painting is shipped with backing board and backing paper only which will reduce shipping costs. The quoted shipping costs will be for this option.
