Unusual Freehand Watercolor Theorem
Nicely rendered 19th C. watercolor version of the classic still life elements—assorted fruits in an earthenware bowl resting on a rust-colored plinth. Wove paper with minor foxing on the lower edge that doesn’t intrude into the mellow tones of the painting. Original deeply ogee-carved frame with gilt surface and an applied bead molding with pinned metal bosses at the corners. Surface chipping has been retouched with yellow paint—a folky solution that makes me smile. 14 ¾” x 11 ¾”.
