An unsigned watercolor on heavy textured white drawing paper of corn ricks and pumpkins on a gentle slope with blue sky above and hills in the distance. It is well executed with the focus carried to the rick in the front by the use of details there and looser painting in other parts of the watercolor. The bowl done on the backside of the page also shows the artists quality. The bowl seems to clearly indicate that the work was done in the earlier part of the 20th century. The Watercolor is 12 by ...

A watercolor on paper of a castle on the water with a boat and three women walking on the shingle in the foreground, a row boat on the water and the castle in the distance against the sky. John Varley (1778-1842) was an English watercolorist who painted a large quantity of small watercolors including other versions of Conway castle. There are numerous other watercolors that are attributed to him, but probably not by him. This one has luminosity and precision that leads me to think that it is mos...

A very large albumen print of the statue of St. George by Donatello. Originally sculpted about 1416 for the Orsanmichele in Florence, the statue and niche are now at the Bargello.

A number of Italian photographers are known for taking images of Renaissance works, including Giorgio Sommer and Fratelli Al...
