For the Anglophile, this is a piece of classic old England, a watercolor, 10" by 14", (16 3/8" by 20" as framed), signed at lower left by artist MICHAEL VICARY, the scene a narrow riverboat barge on the Thames under the classic view of Windsor Castle outside London. A few pieces by Vicary have crossed the auction block, but the main appeal of the work lies in its fine detail and craftsmanship. Note the five swans, the two figures rowing in the foreground, the fine reflections, tiny figures on the deck enjoying the splendid day and scenery, and the flags and umbrellas. The work is in excellent condition and it's ready for the wall. .
