Edward Tucker (1825-1909) - Late 19th Century Watercolour, River Scene, Barge
DescriptionA wonderful example of a watercolour work by acclaimed British artist Edward Tucker. The scene depicts a river view with two figures on a small boat and a village in the distance. Executed with a delicate and subtle hand, the washes of colour have been proficiently applied to the substrate. Painting is laid to backing card and presented in a green card mount and in a simple silver effect frame. Signed. On watercolour paper.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration, surface abrasion and light foxing. Small scratches and scuffs to the frame.
