Description

An extremely well painted watercolour depicting an Egyptian street seller bartering over the sale of his fruit, depicted in the doorway to his humble abode seen sitting on a yellow, red and grey striped shawl with an assortment of fruit filling his wicker woven baskets.

The buyer seen with a spouted water vessel.sits patiently on a chair,with a rosey apple in his left hand,proposing a suitable price to the wise old grey bearded man who listens intently. A large basket of ripe pineapples are painted with great detail in the background,with an oak shelving unit shown within the left hand inside of the doorway. The distinct bright yellow blanket brightens up the whole scene,and adds a spark of realism.

The overall standard of painting is top quality and worthy of the best collectors of fine watercolour art,with the subject matter being a desirable and interesting subject showing daily life on the side streets of Cairo.
