John Syer Snr. (1815-1885) - Signed 1855 Watercolour, At the Seaside, Hastings



A delightful Victorian watercolour by John Syer Snr. Figures appear to be collecting shells and exploring the rock pools in the distance. With body colour. Well presented in a cream card mount and simple black frame. Signed, dated and inscribed with the location. On watercolour paper.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and very minor foxing. Overall the condition is good.


27.5 x 42.6cm (10.8" x 16.8")
Framed Size: 40.7 x 55.4cm (16" x 21.8")
