Watercolor on paper laid down long ago on a thin old board, the subject being fruit including green and purple grapes as well as a melon, measuring 10 3/4" by 18 1/4" inside the mat (19" by 26 1/2" as framed), apparently unsigned, dating likely to the late nineteenth century. This is a fine example of American still life art of the period. I would imagine the unknown artist would be listed, due to the quality of the work. Condition is excellent, with fresh colors and no water stains or foxing. The paper on which this was executed actually extends about an inch both above and below the present mat. I have to wonder if this might be signed on the side glued to the board. .
