This wonderfully naive yet utterly charming Georgian Folk Art watercolor upon laid paper dates to the early 19th century, circa 1820. We believe that this attractive watercolor painting was possibly the land owner’s vision for the construction of Little Webbery House, Devon, England which is a Grade II listed house in the very small village of Alverdiscott. The existing house certainly bears a close resemblance to our painting.
Our favorite detail is the smartly dressed Regency couple walking up the path with their small exuberant dog and the name of the village hand-painted on to the mount – the family were proud of their village. The watercolor is housed behind glass in a large attractive bird's-eye maple frame with a gilt slip, it is ready to hang.
Alverdiscott is a village in the rural County of Devon, England. Webbery Barton refers to an area of the village owned by the wealthy Barton family.
Measuring: Frame width 19.25 inch (49 cm) by height 15.25 inch (39 cm). Frame depth 1 inch (2.5 cm). Watercolor width 10.75 (27 cm) by height 7 5/8 inch (19.5 cm).
Condition: Some very minor foxing and old staining to an area below the house, this is exaggerated by our studio lights. There is a small 0.25 inch restored area of paper disintegration under the front left window of the right house. The frame is perfectly stable with some bumps and drying related surface cracks. There is a 1.75 inch horizontal chip to the bottom left corner of the frame. There is a 4.25 shallow surface chip to the right side of the top edge of the frame.
