British Watercolor of a Boy Blowing Bubbles

Boy with Bubble

F.W. Searle (British, active late 19th century)

Watercolor on paper, signed lower left corner.

Painting size: 9.5 x 6.25
Frame size: 14.775x 12

This painting of a boy playing with a soap bubble, pipe and bowl at the ready, is possibly a copy of a figure from a 17th-century Dutch genre scene. The painter obviously had a sophisticated understanding of color and effectively captures the intensity of a young person fully engaged with his activity.

Searle exhibited a watercolor of plums at the Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street in London. He is listed in the Dictionary of British Art, Volume IV: Victorian Painters (Wood, 1995).
