Marjorie Ransom Cummins Pink Cabbage Roses Watercolor Painting.
Incredibly outstanding are the words that come to mind when viewing this antique watercolor painting. The roses are indeed spectacular, in pastel pink shades tinged with buttercream yellow, a grand vertical study of cabbage roses and rosebuds. It is signed by Marjorie Ransom Cummins, a listed artist (see biography below). The artwork is superbly executed with great skill and color hues. Some of the old pencil sketches are still barely visible in the background. It is one of the most beautiful antique watercolor paintings we've ever come across, so much more gorgeous in person than the photos can capture. The painting is in excellent condition, and lays flat. It is housed in its original gesso over wood frame, with gold highlights. The frame is also in VG condition, with some rubs and joint aging typical for apiece of its age, not detracting, but mentioned for accuracy. Do excuse any glass glare reflections in the photos. This piece came out of an estate in Pasadena, CA. It measures 14.5 x 17.75 inches, ready to hang.
