LATE 19th CENTURY EUROPEAN MARKET SCENE
Watercolor & Pencil on Paper, in the manner of Americans working abroad

c1890

 

 

Vibrantly painted, executed in the manner of the great American expatriate painters of the late 19th century,

the hand deft and sure, well painted wet into wet with dry accents;

having a script signature verso which does not seem to relate to the painter (too fresh),

possibly “White” (the entire verso shown below);

 the dating was derived from costuming (leg of mutton sleeves);

the rag paper without visible watermark;

the scene and dress has an Eastern European flavor

 

Note :

In the late 19th century, many American painters went to Europe to study.  Some remained, preferring European scene without the new industrialization (electrical wires, etc).  Among those were Whistler and Sargent, whose watercolors of European life, including a few marketplaces, used the same painting methods and vibrant colors.

See immediately below for a James McNeill Whistler watercolor of a similar subject matter

 

Condition : Excellent without tears or fading
