Watercolor on paper extensive landscape with sheep lounging peacefully around a mature tree in full spring bloom, 13" by 26" (23" by 35" as framed), signed at lower right by noted American artist CARL PHILLIP WEBER (1850-1921). The subject matter is rather typical of the artist's work; he was from the Philadelphia area and often painted rural, bucolic local landscapes in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Sheep are often found in his compositions and this painting certainly includes them. Weber was born in Germany and died in Philadelphia, where he established a fine reputation. It is believed that he is a brother of Paul Weber, who painted in the Hudson River tradition during the mid 19th century. Condition is fresh, with nice colors, though there is some old moisture stain browning at top right center. It is not immediately obvious to the casual observer but is definitely present.
