Original Mid 19th Century Watercolour - Bishop's Palace, Wells
DescriptionA fine original early or mid 19th Century watercolour with graphite details, depicting a moat with castle wall and a cathedral in the distance. The setting is likely the Bishop's Palace at Wells, with the towers of the cathedral in the distance. The swans at Wells are famous for ringing a bell themselves for food, and can be seen here in the foreground. Well-presented in a wooden frame with green detail, and dark green mount, as shown. Unsigned. On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and foxing. There is some surface abrasion, and minor debris trapped behind the glazing. The frame has only light scuffing.
