French Street Scene

This is an atmospheric original etching and aquatint in colors, image size 14 3/8 x 14 1/4 inches, published by Georges Petit in 1911, blindstamp 'Cercle Librairie Estampes HTV'in the lower left margin, pencil signed and numbered '13'. Although this etching is pencil signed we have not been able to decipher the signature; it certainly appears to have been done by a very competent hand and is quite reminiscent of the work of T F Simon and Luigi Kasimir.

The Country Manor
1808-1878, British

This is a very grand watercolor by noted British artist Joseph Nash (1808-1878). The sight size of this painting is 26 1/8 x 18 3/4 inches, it was painted in 1846 and is signed and dated in the lower right corner. Joseph Nash studied art and architecture with Augustus Charles Pugin, becoming known for his finely detailed images of British architecture, from cathedrals to castles and manors. He would very often place a group of people in the foreground of his compositions, in a way that brought life and energy to the architecture, as can be seen in this image.
