Imperial : Frame : 6" x 7" x 3/4". Image : 4-1/2" x 5-1/2".
Condition/Notes : Quite good. The watercolour on paper is in good condition with quite good colour and a few light foxing marks. The study depicts a Venice canal scene with buildings each side and a wintry sky portayed in Bennett's characteristic style; this work is probably a preparatory study completed en plein air for a later larger painting. The painting is ostensibly unsigned although there appears to be some faint indistinct script in the lower rh corner which may be a signature. The original mottled dark grey/green frame has wear to edges and face; verso hardboard backing nailed in place sealed with dark brown dust sheet which is torn at the edges. Godwin Bennet label attached "Godwin Bennett Fine Art Dealer and Publisher 97 George Street Croydon Surry No. 8919" and a small white label to lh side. Small screw-eyes and string attached.
