A fine original watercolor painting framed measuring 17 3/8 by 12 1/8 inches (overall measurement including the frame). Clearly signed in the lower left corner "Cheriff" (Ro Cherif). A nicely detailed rendering of what I believe is the port of Istanbul, Turkey, a scene which this artist is well known for. Condition appears to be very good, although this painting has not been evaluated outside of the frame. The frame is period and is in very good condition- ready to hang. Looks to date from the first half of the 20th century, most likely the 1930s. Cherif is a listed European Artist. A beautiful work that looks even more impressive in person.
