Description:

American/Canadian School, Late 19th/Early 20th Century

Portrait of a Yellow Victorian House.
Unsigned.
Watercolor and gouache on paper, 21 x 27 1/2 in., matted and framed.
Condition: Moisture and acid staining, minor craquelure to some gouache, minor imperfections.

Note: Robert Bishop, author of the 1979 Folk Painters of America, held this anonymous artist's work in such high esteem that he illustrated an example of it on the dust jacket of that pioneering book. A simpler but similar work sold in 2006 is inscribed "T. Bonneau" and "Iberville, P.Q." The inscription lends credence to the artist's possible French Canadian identity and underscores where he worked - Iberville is a small city about 30 miles south of Montreal, and 30 miles north of the head of Lake Champlain and the American border.
Estimate $6,000-8,000
