Watercolor painting of Bridgeway in Sausalito, San Francisco's neighbor across the Golden Gate. This would be a view looking south in the direction of San Francisco and the bridge. The building at center would have been called Ondine's (high end restaurant) during the 1970's and 1980's when this may have been painted (I remember, as I used to live in Sausalito at that time). The unframed piece measures 11 1/2" by 15". It is signed at lower right by well listed artist SUN YING (1919-2016). At lower left is the Papier d'Arches blind stamp. The artist was born in China. His scroll paintings and other works in the traditional style seem to bring large amounts of money at auction in China. Apparently later in life he moved to San Francisco, and watercolors of that city's familiar scenes are seen in the marketplace. The watercolor has seen some folds, the most obvious at top edge down towards the red roof, and at bottom to the left of the signature. Examination of the reverse side shows further creasing, which happily did not express itself on the front. Frame the painting and the small flaws should not be an issue. Photos are on the yellowish side due to having been taken in afternoon light. Ask for more true color images.
