George I Alexander (1832-1913) - Signed & Framed Watercolour, The Rural Cottage
DescriptionA charming watercolour study by listed British artist George I Alexander (1832-1913). The impressionistic brush work and muted colour palette is typical of Alexander's relaxed style and penchant for the British landscape. Well presented in a gilt effect slip and swept frame with beaded detail. Signed. On watercolour paper.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. There are large foxing spots visible to the artwork, spots of surface dirt to the mount and losses to the frame which have been retouched, as shown.
