|This extraordinary nineteenth century landscape watercolor or gouache on cardboard depicts the River Dee at Llangellen with the medieval Llangellen Bridge in the distance. The details are impressive and the overall condition is excellent. The painting is flat and there are no obvious signs of moisture damage. We have not inspected the painting outside its glazed frame. There is no signature and we have no details on provenance. Frame measures 24.5" by 19.5" x 3", and the painting measures 17.5" by 12.5". There are obvious losses to the gesso in the lower left corner. Old glued newsprint (believed to describe commercial shipping routes in the Long Island Sound) once held the painting in place. The gilded wooden and gesso frame is from the period of the painting, and was recently regilded. New images forwarded upon request. (Please excuse the reflections off the glass.)|
