This is an evocative, interesting, and understated antique figural pencil drawing, colored with watercolor/aquarelle paint. Its main element is the figure of a young child, wrapped demurely in bedsheets and resting with a pet dog that appears to be a small English spaniel. Next to the bed in the background is a birdcage sitting on a dresser, with a large blue parrot bird inside. The piece features gorgeous soft tones of periwinkle blue and peachy orange, with supple movement of the billowy, tousled sheets and the relaxed body language of the figure. The piece is matted with a gorgeous, regally detailed gold and cream tone matting, elevating the aesthetic to a more formal energy that mixes in an interesting way with the softer, more casual tone of the drawing itself.
The piece is in excellent antique condition with age-appropriate wear, framed in a vintage gold gilt frame behind a glass front. The frame is sturdy, in excellent vintage condition with age-appropriate wear.
The frame measures 8 inches long and 7 inches wide.
