Watercolor and ink on paper, and possibly a little gum arabic in spots, for highlight shine, no glass, 7 1/4" by 9 1/4", (15 1/4" by 178 1/2 " in its simple wood frame), the subject a boat harbor no doubt on the central coast of California, signed at lower right center by California watercolor artist RITCHIE ALLEN BENSON (1941-1996). This is a nicely executed work and it is in excellent, fresh condition with no foxing nor water staining, despite having traveled without protective glass. Benson was born in the Los Angeles area and died in Washington state, but I've found little biographical information on him. He apparently worked mostly in watercolor, and works of varying size appear from time to time at auctions. One large piece brought over $3,000 at a John Moran auction. See in my shop another similar work by the artist.
