Beautifully executed, fresh watercolor and gouache painting of tiny figures overpowered by steep coastal cliffs, 9 1/2" by 21 1/2" (16" by 28" framed), signed at lower right "L LEWIS" and dated "96". This is a work by the listed English watercolor artist LENNARD LEWIS (1826-1913). The piece is exceptionally fresh considering that it was created more than 115 years ago. Colors are bright and the paper in excellent condition. Note the tiny figures holding a net at lower left, and the many boats floating in the bay. Lewis was a highly skilled and prolific watercolorist. His works appear frequently at auction in the United Kingdom. I have previously owned and sold his works. , including another watercolor, identically framed, by a different English artist (and acquired at the same time as this piece).
