Dimensions : Frame : 333mm x 385mm x 40mm. Image : 93mm x 145mm. Weight : 1.650kg net.
Condition/Notes : Good. The watercolour on customized art paper is in good condition with good colour and no marking or moisture. The scene depicts the Grand Harbour with a figure in a boat and the clear blue sky with fair weather clouds. The artist's signature is in the lower rh corner in his usual manner; the title Grand Harbour is written in pencil script below the lh corner and the date 1978 in the lower rh corner, both in the artist's hand. The art card has a grey textile pattern and is enclosed in a gilt surround. The ornate gilt and ebonized heavy frame is in good condition although there is an area of surface abrasion to the immediate right of the lh gilt corner which has been repainted and a similar abrasion to the upper rh corner; both are not particularly noticeable when on display. The frame has a wooden backing board which is painted brown and sealed with framing tape. Screw-eyes and cord attached. An attractively framed popular scene created with the Valletta tourist market in mind reflecting the boom years of the 1970's - a nostalgic painting.
