Amazing Water Color of a Beautiful Woman with Yellow Shawl "Peasant Girl" by Vittorio Tessari.Circa 1887-1897.
This beautiful art work was done by Tessari circa 1887-1897. Very nice and bright, good addition to any fine art collection.
Condition: Excellent overall condition with colors still bright and defined. Upper left edge of the paper is missing. May still be within the frame or it may have never existed. We choose not to open it to find out. There is some foxing (age-related spots and browning) on the paper. This can be professionally restored to remove the foxing.
