Attrib. William Hatherell (1855-1928) - Early 20th Century Gouache, Elderly Lady



A very fine and well-detailed gouache en grisaille, attributed to William Hatherell (1855-1928), depicting an elderly lady watering a geranium at a window. The artist has masterfully captured the forms of the composition in grey tones, casting a sense of weight on the subject, perhaps to reflect her age. Well-presented in a Hogarth-style black wooden frame with gilt detail, as shown. Unsigned. On wove.


In very good condition. Some very light surface discolouration. The frame has minor scuffing and wear to the corners.


43.1 x 28.5cm (17" x 11.2")
Framed Size: 47.9 x 34cm (18.9" x 13.4")
