Watercolor on paper, 11 5/8" by 15 5/8", signed at lower center, the subject a castle-like structure on a coast, a sailing craft at center. This is a painting by ROBERT PATTERSON (1898-1981), an American artist of some note, especially in illustration and advertising art. He was educated at the Chicago Art Institute, and in Paris. Patterson seems to have worked in two distinct styles, the better known, his mid century illustration for books and magazines and ads; the other, like this.......impressionistic and painterly, in watercolor. This example has been exposed to a little moisture at some time, there being some light foxing and staining at top left (a little of it is just on the inside of the glass, it turns out). .
