Gerald Ackermann (1876-1960) - Early 20th Century Watercolour, Village Scene
A delicate early 20th Century watercolour by the artist Gerald Ackermann, depicting a bucolic landscape view of a village church. This fine landscape scene is carefully painted and well composed, embodying the charming atmosphere and characteristics of this particular village. The artist has used a considered use of tone in order to portray the soft light falling on the architecture, revealing its unique attributes. Ackermann masterfully blends washes of colour with finer details, producing an interesting architectural study, while simultaneously balancing the overall composition.
Displayed in a stone coloured washline mount and well presented in an unglazed gilt effect frame. Signed in the lower right hand corner of the picture, as shown.Signed. On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some very minor discolouration. The frame has very minor scuffed edges. Generally in good condition.
