A truly wonderful antique watercolor by French set designer and artist Pierre-Luc-Charles Ciceri (1782-1868). Ciceri was the chief set designer for the Paris Opera from 1810 to 1847. He was also painter to King Charles X, and he was in charge of decorations for the coronation in 1825. This stunning work could be a rendering of a set design for a ballet, but is most likely a set design for an opera, judging from the costumes. It is 28" by 22" in its frame, and the watercolor is 18" by 13.5". The mat appears to be hand made as well with its watered silk look. Quite an amazing work!
Condition: there is a bit of damage to the frame (see pictures), and there is what looks like some old water damage in the lower left corner (see picture).
Thanks for looking!
