This is a beautifully painted watercolor, gouache and ink drawing of a street scene somewhere in the Middle East, perhaps Cairo, Egypt, measuring 18 1/2" by 12 1/2" inside the matting, and 28" by 24 1/2" framed. The artist signed the work in the lower right corner and dated it there 1916. There are at least six or seven figures in the scene, and a lot of intricate detail in the building facades. Not a lot seems to be known about the artist, including birth and death dates, but, works have sold at auction. Subject matter is generally street scenes, in Istanbul, Damascus, or Cairo, and Janowitz also evidently painted in Italy, with still life and some landscapes known. The drawing is in amazing, fresh condition considering it is nearly a century old. The present mat and frame do not in my opinion show it off to best advantage. The sheet is loose underneath the mat so needs to be rematted or at least properly reattached to the backing. E
