Condition/Notes : Good/very good. The close-up study of the old fortress is very good with good colour and no damage or moisture. The view is very well-known and is a favourite study of this artist. The signature is in the lower rh corner "J. Seits Gruz 1926" which is in usual manner. The painting is displayed within a period gold mount with gold core and is in good condition. The gilt frame is also in good condition with very little wear. Verso closed with kraft board and sealed with 24mm gummed tape. Rings and cord attached. Pencil handscript along the upper edge states "Gruz Dubrovnik Croatio Johan Sietz" (note incorrect spelling of Seits). The second of the pair is a distant view of Gruz from adjacent shore (again a favourite view of this artist) again in very good condition with good colour and no damage or moisture. The scene depicts Gruz as viewed through the lush vegetation comprising fruiting palm and flowering yucca plants. The painting is signed again in the lower rh corner in the same manner "J. Seits Gruz 1926".The golden mount is also in good condition with the same gilt frame and kraft backing board sealed with 24mm gummed tape. Pencil handscript along the upper edge states "Gruz Dubrovnik Croatia Johan Seitz" (again mis-spelling of Seits). Rings and cord attached. The pair is particularly attractive and accomplished in style and execution. A very good example of the work of this well-known and respected Polish artist. Please view the images below :
