Description

This is an original watercolor painting found at an auction in rural Pennsylvania. No doubt the condition issues led someone to believe it was of little value. However, further research reveals that this is a work by Mary Loring Warner. This noted artist lived from 1860 to 1950. She is "known for her vibrant colors and fine brushstrokes." With a bit of research you can see that the signature matches the signing on other works. This work is not dated, but the framing suggest the early 1900s. The label says that it was framed in Greaves Art Store in Middletown, Connecticut (which is consistent with the artist's biography) There is a pencil note on the back that is not fully legible, but it reads in part... "meadows along the sea coast in Connecticut after the salt marsh hay is cut." The frame is made of wood and gesso and has some damage. There is no glass. I don't believe there was any originally either. Finally, the image has two noticeable water-stains. Hopefully, this can be restored. The image measures 13 x 6 inches within the matte. The frame is 16 by 22.5 inches. Here is an interesting post with more information about the artist: http://bygeorgeifoundit.blogspot.com/2008/05/buy-art-smart-post-impressionist.html
