Fanny Mearns (fl.1870-1881) - Late 19th Century Watercolour, The Day's News
DescriptionAn extremely fine and reflective watercolour portrait of a seating lady, by the Victorian listed artist Fanny Mearns (fl.1870-1881). The artist has a distinctly delicate technique, using light palettes to depict thoughtful and ponderous interior scenes. Here, the reader reflects upon the day's news, in the farmhouse kitchen of an ancient dwelling, suggesting a focus on the passing of time. Well-presented in an elaborate washline mount and thin distressed wooden frame, as shown. Signed. On wove.
The picture is in remarkably good condition for its age, with only slight discolouration and two pin holes with tears to the upper left edge. There are some minor marks to the mount and scuffing to the corners of the frame.
