Street Scene, St. Ives, watercolour on paper, signed W. Sands. c1930. Framed and glazed.
Dimensions : Frame : 423mm x 254mm x 13mm. Image : 245mm x 120mm. Weight : 0.820kg net.
Condition/Notes : Good. The watercolour on paper is in good condition with good colour and no foxing or moisture. The scene depicts a cobbled street with details of a building, which must be of significance but currently unidentified, and three lobster pots. The painting has the characteristic blue tone which Sands identified with the quality and effects of the natural light in St. Ives and can be seen in many of his works. Whether this interpretation is effective is open to debate. The study is signed in the lower rh corner in the artist's usual manner and titled St. Ives in the lower lh corner. The painting is displayed within an old grey mount which has marking and foxing in places and toning around the window. The gloss varnished frame is in good condition with light scuffing and sealed with a card backing board and kraft which is torn in places along the edges. No visible script. Old screw-eyes and twine attached. Please view the images below :
