Art  20    Watercolor over Etching, signed J. Wood

  Description: This artwork features a watercolor painting done over a basic outline print. Luckily, there's a label on the back that appears to be from the artist based on the type of information. The scene is Robin Hood's Bay, one of many scenic seaside villages in England. The artist was working at Chapel Studio, which was in the old Weslyan chapel on Chapel St. in the 1950s. It's also from the label that I know it's a painted print since the print lines are hardly visible under the painting. It's also numbered 31, suggesting the artist used the print to do a series of this scene. The palette is rather Impressionistic, while the style is more Post-Impressionist. The signature J. Wood is in the lower left corner. I've found a few possibilities among the many J. Wood names but haven't been able to confirm any of them as the artist.

Frame size is 12" x 11" while the visible art is 6 1/2" x 5".  

Condition: very good with no damage on the artwork. The matte does need to be replaced.

We try to ship in one or two days after payment arrives, and we're generous with the bubblewrap and styrofoam peanuts.

Remember that all proceeds go to support good causes: my spouse, our cats (see the "staff" here), our creditors, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
