Condition/Notes : Quite good. The watercolour on paper study of West Country Moorland is in quite good condition with good colour but light foxing to the upper half of the painting in the sky and behind the lh tree. This foxing is very light and does not detract from the enjoyment of the painting. The scene is spectacular and typical of the work of this well known prolific West Country artist and is signed in the lower lh corner in his usual manner. See the images below. It has been estimated c1913 as the artist joined the Devonshire Regiment at the outbreak of WWI and served abroad for the duration moving to Dundee on his return. The painting is displayed in a period gilt mount, which is in good condition, within a gilt frame. The frame is sturdy with wear commensurate with age, the card backing board secured by rusty nails and covered with a gummed brownish paper sheet which has been split at the upper edges. WH Sweet is written in handscript in the upper quarter. Loose screw-eyes fitted. A good example of the work of this artist. Will benefit from re-framing. Please view the images below :
