Condition/Notes : Good. The gouache and watercolour on paper painting is in good condition with good strong colours and no damage or foxing; overall, in extremely good condition considering its age. The painting depicts an idyllic scene from above the harbour taking in the spectacular coastline with a tranquil sea and distant summer heat haze. The painting is titled Clovelly in the lower lh corner in the artist's hand and signed in his usual manner in the lower rh corner below the lower branch of the tree. In the practice of the time, the work is framed without a protective mount directly below the glazing and has not suffered any adverse consequences; obviously a well protected and much loved work of art. The original, heavy, antique style gilt wooden frame is also in good condition with light wear to face and some light scuffing to edges; backing board secured by old panel pins and sealed with brown Kraft style dust sheet which is torn in places along the edges. The dust sheet has been temporarily secured with tape. Art dealer's label is attached to the lower quarter which states Gladwell & Co. Ltd., 68, Queen Victoria Street, E.C.4. Managing Director A.L. Gladwell, F.R.S.A. Fine Art Dealers, Gilders and Frame Makers etc. (Company established over 250 years ago and still trading today). (See the images below). Screw-eyes and cord attached.
