Augustus Morton Hely-Smith RBA - Early 20th Century Watercolour, Roses in a Jug



A delicate watercolour with an impressive sense of realist detail and careful composition by the accomplished and well-established artist Augustus Morton Hely-Smith RBA (1862-1941). Slightly dulled red roses are depicted in an earthenware jug, with a cloth background in the traditional style. The artist's adept proficiency in the medium in clear. Handsomely presented in a washline mount and distressed gilt wooden moulded frame, as shown. Signed and incsribed on the reverse. On watercolour paper.


In very good condition overall. There is some very light surface dirt to the mount, and minor scuffing to the frame.
