William Walcot (British, 1874-1943)

Queen's College, Oxford
Signed "W. Walcot" l.r., identified on a label from Seville Art Studio Ltd., New York, affixed to the frame backing.
Oil on paper mounted to canvas, 11 1/2 x 15 1/4 in. (29.2 x 38.7 cm), framed.
Condition: Good.
Estimate $700-900

Framed dimensions are 18 x 21 5/8 in.

The artist is identified on a presentation plaque, and the location of the scene is also recorded in ink on the frame backing board.

Under UV light, there is some fluorescence in the sky at the u.l. quadrant to the left of the dome, which appears to be natural reflection from the white pigment. Fine line of craquelure across the u.l. corner.
