Watercolor and gouache painting of camels and their riders in a bleak desert landscape, some ancient architecture visible in the distance, the work signed at lower right corner "A. Calvert" (or first initial might be "R"--). The piece measures 4 1/2" by 9 3/8" inside the present old gold mat (not framed----there is an original frame in which it came but that is falling apart). I do not see an obvious listing but the artist was talented and drew with skill details as fine as the camel legs and rider headgear. Date of execution is likely circa 1900. The drawing is in good condition. Under very close examination, some light foxing is visible in dark clouds and there is some old mat browning line at top hidden by mats.
