Painting

The Country Manor
$1600.00
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.

Hamburg Harbor
1881-1962, Austrian

This is a remarkable original etching and aquatint of Hamburg Harbor in Germany. The image size is 15 5/8 x 22 3/4 inches, published in 1914 in an edition of 100 impressions, pencil signed and numbered. This image is printed using two plates, one in black ink and one in gray ink to create a chiaroscuro effect with beautiful tonal range and rich contrast. Luigi Kasimir studied at the Vienna Academy of Art, although much of his etching technique was self taught and learned through working from nature. Kasimir traveled all over Europe and the United States creating many spectacular etchings.
