Edmund T Parris (1793-1873) - 1842 Watercolour, Allegorical Dance



An exquisitely tender watercolour in a classical style showing a young female nude in billowing drapery dancing hand in hand along a coastline with a cherubic young boy. The pair are adorned with flowers and are staring joyful at each other. Edmund Thomas Parris (1793-1873) has beautifully captured the blushing, smooth skin of the figures in delicate detail.

The artist has monogrammed and dated to the lower left. The painting is presented in a decorative, gilt effect, oval frame with glazing and a wide, cream mount. There is a gallery label at the reverse with the title and artist's dates.

On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. The frame and mount are in fine condition.


13.9 x 9.8cm (5.5" x 3.9")
Framed Size: 33.6 x 27.2cm (13.2" x 10.7")
