Description

I am pleased to offer this lovely original watercolour depicting a view of a village with fields in the foreground. Dating to around 1890, this lovely painting has never been hung or displayed, it has lain, possibly forgotten for many years, in a portfolio of watercolours by a very talented amateur painter, Mary Sophia Godlee. I was lucky enough to purchase the portfolio at auction which came direct from the artists descendants and have selected the best paintings to be mounted and framed so that they can be appreciated all these years later. Many of them look to have been exhibited in local art shows as they have the initials of the judging panel and what each judge awarded the painting on the reverse. I was not surprised to see 1st and 2nd on most of these lovely watercolours. I was drawn to these paintings mainly by her use of colour, each one is quite beautiful in its own right and because they have never seen the light of day, the colours are bright and unfaded. Hard to believe these were painted in the 1890's. There is some very light foxing to the sky of this painting.
The painting measures 24cm long by 35cm wide. Measurements including the frame are 39.5cm tall by 51cm wide.
