This fine watercolor of a traditional house in the high mountains of Austria or Switzerland is signed at lower right "M Schmid" and dated 1889. Note the wealth of interesting details from the faraway village at lower right to the flower boxes to the clothing of the figures. This could possibly be a work of Matthias Schmid (1835 - 1923), but that artist's works are mostly oil paintings, are signed differently and subject matter also is dissimilar. The watercolor stands on its own merits and it is in excellent condition considering it is over 125 years old. Measurements are 12" by 18" inside the mat and 19" by 25" framed.
