Lot of Two Unframed Watercolors by Joel W. Reichard (American, 20th Century)
Broadway Fountain, Madison, Indiana and The Jeremiah Sullivan House, Madison, Indiana.
Both signed "Reichard A.W.S." l.r. Sheet sizes to 22 x 30 in. Condition: Both with brown paper tape along four sides.
N.B. These two watercolors present well known landmarks in the historic city of Madison, Indiana. A noted example of Federal style architecture, The Sullivan House was built c. 1818 for Jeremiah Sullivan, a legislator and State Supreme Court Judge, as well as founder of Hanover College and of the Indiana Historical Society. The Broadway Fountain was manufactured by Kirtland Company of New York City during the 1870s and was on exhibit at the Philadelphia Centennial in 1876. It was given to the city of Madison after the Centennial by the International Order of the Oddfellows.
