Continental School, 19th Century
Woman in a Pink Gown
Signed and inscribed "S. Simoni//R 76" l.r.
Watercolor on paper/board, sight size 14 3/4 x 9 5/8 in. (37.5 x 24.5 cm), framed.
Condition: Toning, abrasion, sheet affixed to window mat around all four edges.
There is a faded Doll and Richards label on the backing paper. Inside the frame, the watercolor is backed with newspaper sheets from the New York Herald, dated Tuesday, August 31, 1886. Because the painting is affixed to the window mat on all four sides, it is hard to tell if the work is painted on paper affixed to paper board or directly on the paperboard. There is toning and staining to the reverse of the paperboard.
