Ab absolutely amazing rendering of the Pyrenees mountains, by a British painter traveling to France in 1865.

The piece which is stunningly beautiful, is dated, and the Pyrenees area described in pencil at the front and at the back.

This is definitely a Preraphaelite vision, ( the movement started slightly earlier, in 1848 ) with the hyper realistic relief and nearly rainbow hues, typical of the School's representation of nature.

Not the work of an amateurish watercolorist, the piece is done by a professional painter, with genuine academic training, who has embraced the Preraphaelite School's revolutionary theory and technique.

True Preraphaelite English paintings like this one, which are still VERY close to the intensity of the movement, are extremely rare.

Though the style lingered in England until the end of the Century, it of course "lost steam", to become more and more edulcorated with time.

But this is vibrant and powerful!

A small 19th C masterpiece for the sophisticated collector.

CONDITION: A watercolor on thick artist's paper, the piece has some wear to its borders, (lower left corner particularly) but there is no paint loss and the colors are still stunningly fresh. Slight foxing in the sky.

MEASUREMENTS: Length: 14". Width: 9 1/2". (36 cm) by (24 cm)

Will be shipped "Expedited" from Paris (5-7 days), including insurance, online tracking and signature at delivery.
