PAIR of gouache paintings, one apparently showing the island of Ischia in moonlight, at the entrance to the Gulf of Naples, the other a coastal scene of the mainland, neither signed, circa 1900. The Ischia work measures 6 1/2" by 9 3/4", the other 7" by 10 3/4" (12" by 14 3/4" and 12 1/2" by 16" framed----the frames slightly different). Such paintings were popular souvenirs that went home with Grand Tour visitors at the turn of the century. On the reverse of the moonlight scene a contemporary label placed after sealing notes that the word "Ischia" was written on the reverse of the watercolor. Condition is generally excellent, I note a small smudge and fox mark in the sky of the mainland scene, near the clouds.
