Circa 1900 watercolor of the heart of Venice, Italy, including the familiar sights of canal and gondola, St. Mark's Basilica church and the famous clock tower on the Piazza San Marco, signed at lower left "E.K. Coomber". This work measures 12" by 6 1/4" inside the mat and 18 1/2" by 12" framed. The artist though apparently unknown was talented and a master of the watercolor medium. The artwork is clean, although the photos suggest otherwise; there is foxing and soil on the inside of the glass. As one moves the work in the light and places it at different angles, the "foxing" also moves, confirming that it is just on the glass. The mat has old water staining at lower right and extreme upper left corners, so will need to be replaced with a fresh, non-acid mat. An old Boots department store label indicates that this was in Scotland at one time. Photos without the glass available upon request.
