|A lovely early 20th century scenic watercolour painting by the listed British artist Edwin St. John (1878-1961). This painting measures 20-3/4" x 14-1/4" and it depicts a wonderful panoramic hillside view overlooking Lake Lugano in Italy with a town in the background ("Scene of Lake Lugano" hand written in pencil on back). Mountains rise up on the horizon under a partly cloudy sky, and the detail, lighting and composition are all top-notch, with vivid colours in front and atmospheric detail as the distance recedes. This painting is being sold unmatted and unframed; it is currently on foam-core with temporary mounts and it will be properly and securely packed for shipping. This item is in very good original condition with no scrapes, tears, fading, losses, damage or repairs other than the following: there is some soiling/foxing to the white clouds, there are a couple of shallow paper blisters near the top (shown sidelit in the last image) and a very slight touch of rubbing and a small corner bump along the lower edge from a previous mat. A beautiful painting ready for conservation and framing. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are secondhand and may have slight signs of gentle use.
