George Barker (1858-1911) - Late 19th Century Watercolour, Coastal Grazing
DescriptionA coastal scene with a flock of sheep grazing in the foreground and a gaff sloop sailing in the middle distance.

Presented in a white mount and a gilt-effect wooden frame with ornate floral and foliate detailing. Signed to the lower-right edge. On watercolour paper.
There is some slight debris trapped beneath the glazing and some small scuffs, chips, and areas of retouching to the frame. Overall well-presented and in good condition.
