Lovely pair of Italian landscape framed watercolor paintings. The colors are beautiful with muted blues, greens, browns, and terracotta. They have a very nice wooden frame. One painting is marked on the back Villa Giutia, Bellagio, and the other is marked Villa Arionati, Lago di Como. It is Lake Como and the village of Bellagio. Each measures 7" x 5". A very charming pair!
Beautiful french watercolor on canvas pastel painting found in Brussels. It looks like a scene out of Venice, but could be Bruge which is often called the Venice of the north. The details are wonderful to the balconies, water, and boats. It has a heavy, wooden frame with glass. The frame measures 13.5" long and 12" wide. I could find no signature. A beautiful one of a kind painting!
Ahtique handpainted french miniature watercolor painting of a lady under glass with maple frame, c. 1860. I believe it is painted on ivory or bone. The lady is lovely with bright colors and beautiful eyes. The frame measures alittle over 4" long and a little under 4" wide. The glass opening measures about 2.25" long and under 2" wide. It has a hanger for easy hanging. I could find nothing wrong with it.
Beautiful framed watercolor found in southern France with the familiar provence colors. The painting is a french cottage in the countryside with a bridge right on the water. The frame is a terra cotta color with fading of color and some cracks. It has a glass covering. Sorry about the glare in the photos. It measures about 14" wide and 12.25" high. It is signed what I think is J. Tolic. I think this dates to the 1930-40's. A beautiful painting!
Fabulous framed watercolor portrait of an English priest, Rev. John Rees Taylor, 1814-1890. I have a letter from the University of Bristol, dated 18th February 1997. It states: Dear Margaret, Re: John Rees Taylor He was a ten year man or student for the degree of B.D., which I presume he obtained at Lampeter College, although he had a year at Queens College, Ceambridge 1845-1846. He was ordained a deacon in 1837 and a priest in 1838. I would date the painting to this period...
Wonderful vintage framed watercolor by the French artist Barday. Barday was a prolific artist around WWII and his scenes are mostly french. It is signed by Barday and has the title Bonsecours-La Basilique which I believe is located on the Belgium-France border. The frame is a very heavy stained oak wood. There are some scratches to the wood and a few very small stains. It measures 17.5" long and 13" wide. It has a primitive rope on the back for hanging. The colors are very pretty!
English watercolor framed painting dating to the early 1900's. It has a Georgian mansion in a countryside scene with cows, trees, and a fence. Lovely muted colors. I could not find a signature. The frame measures 11" x 7.5" and has a glass covering. There are some scratches and loss of paint to the frame and the backing has worn away on the back. Just a lovely painting.
