Joseph Compton Hall RBA (1863-1937) - 1916 Watercolour, City River View
DescriptionA fine original early 20th Century watercolour with charcoal detail by the British artist Joseph Compton Hall RBA (1863-1937), showing a city view, a large river stretching towards the distance. A number of large wooden boats line the sides of the river, the occasional figure visible to the left side. The artist has achieved a great sense of compositional balance, with fine naturalistic form and palette. Well-presented in an ornate gilt frame with leaf and berry detail, beading and a gilt slip. Signed and dated. On watercolour paper.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. With light foxing spots visible to the page and losses to the corners of the frame, which have been filled and retouched, as shown.
