AN UNUSUAL VIEW OF “CLAIES” COVERING A GLASSHOUSE.
(France): ca. 1900. An accomplished watercolour showing a greenhouse completely covered in the pale green wooden slate screen once used regularly in glass house cultivation. The structure is set within an area laid out with trees, bedding plants, and paths. A decorative doorway and a flexible ladder over the top of the house distinguish the drawing. Probably from an album or a series of sketches. Very attractive. 15 x 24.5 cm.
Watercolour sketch on paper; edges unfinished. In very good condition. Simple, temporary paper mat provided.
