For sale here is an original vintage 1940s signed ink and watercolor painting on paper and in its original handmade black wire frame. Signed at front "Karis" and dated on back paper "1947". This is one of a pair that I have for sale individually, and both are in identical handmade black metal wire frames. I haven't found any information about the artist, but the name is Greek, so it's possible the artist was from Greece originally, and lived in France. The painting is a Parisian street scene, a highly popular genre in the late 1940s and 1950s, and I'm guessing this painting was originally purchased in Paris shortly after the war by a GI or American tourist who brought it back and had it framed here in the US. Measures 21" by 18" at the outside edges of the frame, and the painting itself measures 14-3/8" by 11-3/8". Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear to the edges of the frame as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
