Turkish River Crossing, with mosque and boats, watercolour and gouache on paper, unsigned. Framed and glazed. c1900.
Dimensions : Frame : 495mm x 318mm x 17mm. Image : 296mm x 149mm. Weight : 1.400kg net.
Condition/Notes : Good. The watercolour and gouache painting is in good condition with strong colours and no damage or moisture. The scene depicts a ferry-boat crossing with two figures and boats and the illuminated mosque and associated buildings on the opposite shore. The scene is at dusk and the lights from the ferry landing are reflected in the water which highlights the painting. The actual location is currently uncertain but is in Turkey; any update will be added. The painting is unsigned and there is no description or title visible. The original stone coloured mount is in good condition with slight toning to the window edges. Original gilt wooden frame is sturdy and in quite good condition with scuffing and scratching around the edges; backing board in three separate wooden sheets secured by old rusty pins with remnants of an old backing sheet in places. Screw-eyes and cord attached.
Overall, a very attractive painting in the Orientalist style which will benefit from identification of the location and the artist.
