Condition/Notes : Good. The watercolour study of Rue de la Gazelle in Algiers is in good condition with good colour. The painting depicts the known street in Old Algiers which illustrates the buttressed style of building typical of the city. The Mediterranean blue sky forms a pleasing border to the top of the composition and lifts the eye above the drab surroundings of the rue. There are a few small foxing spots in the sky and there are some surface creases to the paper base near the top edge of the mount but these are not particularly noticeable in normal viewing. There is also a light residual shadow about 10mm below the mount edge which indicates that a previous smaller frame had been fitted probably to conceal the above mentioned surface creasing. Otherwise the painting is in good condition. The painting is signed in pencil in the lower lh corner "rue de la Gazelle Alger Jar. 18". The work is displayed within a hinged mount sandwich. The mount is in good condition with no toning to the window cut edges. The chalked wooden frame is in good condition with a hardboard backing board secured by lugs and sealed with 50mm gummed framing tape. Screw-eyes and cord attached. No script verso.
