This is a lovely little watercolor/gouache sketch of an old New England doorway was probably inspired by one of the American impressionists such as Childe Hassam. It is painted in a loose, quick sketch style, letting the bright whites capture the sunlight on the architecture, and using bright blues in the garden.
The painting was done on a light brown tone artist board/card stock. Circa 1890-1910.
The artist is unknown, and is signed only with the initials "A. P. K."
The matting was replaced with conservation grade materials, with a textured front mat to complement the work and the original frame.
Note: International shipping is not available for this item.
Sight size: Approximately 7.5" wide, 11" high; overall size 13.25" wide, 18" high.
Condition: Excellent, with just some wear to the corners of the frame.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, Returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
