This lovely 19th C Victorian watercolor shows a shepherd and his dog tending their flock of sheep which graze nearby on the bank of a pond. A group of thatched roof cottages nestles into the trees in the background with a church spire rising beyond. A bucolic country scene captured nearly 150 years ago. This lovely little painting is delicately rendered with a sure hand... a reminder of the quieter pace of life lived in a simpler time.
CONDITION is wonderful with the antiqued frame showing some normal wear. Framed in wood with a hand detailed French mat done in brown ink, gray wash, a gilded inner edge, and an applied silver metallic strip... a really lovely presentation. Signed and dated in the lower right corner. Measures 10 1/4" x 14 3/4" overall, with a sight size of 6 1/4" x 9 1/2".
An intimate size, this painting is perfect to stand on a shelf or mantle ... or hang it somewhere where you'll be able to pause and get lost in the details. Enjoy!
