An 18th century old master drawing by George Morland. Circa:
1700's. French or British - English ? Carbon on laid
paper. Framed in a 19th century period water gilt frame. I
have not taken this apart but guarantee the back of the
drawing is signed and is also water marked as noted on back( the drawing is
not glued to another paper but only tacked at top as it should
be ). Carbon on laid paper. Hand painted water color
matt with sepia ink title and date ( slightly faded ) ( says
"George Morland 1763-1804 " which looks to
have been done in the 19th century - same time as frame. A
simple but Important original old master drawing. Lots of
provenance and info on back. Great estate piece.
Measuring: overall 18.5" by 16.5" and Image/site
inside of frame: 13" by 11".
