Edna Waverley Guy (1897-1969) - c.1930 Watercolour, Kashmir Landscape, India



A fine and delicate watercolour of Kashmir with the Himilayan mountains dominating the background. Guy travelled extensively with her husband and it is thought this was completed during their time in India before he was killed in 1942. Touches of bright colour stud the hazy scene and a small house peeks out of the riverside bushes. Monogrammed to the lower right-hand corner. Well presented in a vintage distressed, gilt-effect frame. On watercolour paper.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. Very minor scuffs to the frame.


27.4 x 22cm (10.8" x 8.7")
Framed Size: 42.3 x 36.6cm (16.7" x 14.4")

Artist Biography

The watercolourist Edna Waverley Guy was born at Sutton, Surrey. She was married to Lieut. Col. Norman Greenwood Guy, who was killed in action in 1942. She studied art in South Africa under J. H. Amschewitz and in Paris at the Académie Julian under Guillonnet, 1921-22. In England, she attended the Slade, and also studied at the Yellow Door School under Reginald Eves, 1934-35. As an army wife she travelled the world, visiting India, Kashmir, Australia and other exotic places, painting, on her travels, many impressionistic watercolours which were exhibited at the local galleries. After the war, Edna Guy lived in Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, close to the Thames, which features in so many of her paintings.
