Rare Original Art Deco Water Color and Ink artwork 'The Annunciation' 1918.
This exquisite Original work in Watercolor and Ink, dates to the early 20th century and is entitled (Verkundigung) 'The Annunciation'.
It depicts 2 ethereal young woman, both dressed in pastel blue. One is the Angel Gabriel as she visits the Virgin Mary to tell her she will soon give birth to the son of God and shall name him Jesus (Saviour). At their feet is a beautiful lily pond and in the distance we see a stylized Nazareth.
It is signed by the German Art Deco artist M von Schlogl and dated 1918, but is heavily influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite movement of the mid 19th century.
A simply stunning watercolour in the style of Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
Measuring 12" x 6" + generous margins, it is painted on a fine vellum and has some slight wrinkling of the paper as is consistent with watercolor works. There is also a small bend in the upper right margin which will frame out completely.
The delicate blues and lavenders are almost luminous and there is no age fading or damage to the paint. The condition is very good.
For either the collector of beautiful water colors or just someone who loves the wonderful Pre-Raphaelite style, it is a truly exceptional work of art.
