Detailed antique watercolor drawing of a country villa in a park-like setting, an elegant horse-drawn carriage approaching from left, 6" by 9 3/8" (11 1/4" by 14 1/2" in modern day frame), signed at lower right "Herter" and dated there 1838. The villa seems to have Italian or other Mediterranean architectural characteristics, so perhaps we are in Italy, and the artist is a traveler from Germany. This is all speculation as I cannot locate an appropriate artist of this name. The drawing, coming up on 200 years old, has acquired some of the charming flaws of age, with light creasing of the paper and at top right corner a short tear and pinch. An excellent addition to an intimate small wall in your traditional setting. Found in West Palm Beach, Florida.
