Description
I am pleased to offer these lovely original watercolours depicting daily life in the Victorian era. I suspect these are the artists family and her home. Dating to around 1890, these lovely paintings have never been hung or displayed, they have lain, possibly forgotten for many years, in a portfolio of watercolours by a very talented amateur painter, Mary Sophia Godlee. I was lucky enough to purchase the portfolio at auction which came direct from the artists descendants and have selected the best paintings to be mounted and framed so that they can be appreciated all these years later. Many of them look to have been exhibited in local art shows as they have the initials of the judging panel and what each judge awarded the painting on the reverse. I was not surprised to see 1st and 2nd on most of these lovely watercolours. I was drawn to these paintings mainly by her use of colour, each one is quite beautiful in its own right and because they have never seen the light of day, the colours are bright and unfaded. Hard to believe these were painted in the 1890's. I love this small glimpse into daily life so many years ago. The paintings measure 13cm long by 18cm wide and 17cm long by 14.5cm wide. Measurements including the frame are 51cm tall by 37.5cm wide. UK shipping £15 International - please enquire
