Victorian antique original roses watercolor painting signed AMP 1912, sourced from France. It is a study taken from the artwork of the famous illustrator Catherine Klein, in NEAR FINE fine condition.
The roses are just superbly detailed with accompanying sweet rosebuds. The artwork is indeed exceptional, sourced from France. In Victorian times, the pink rose symbolized that the bearer was an Ambassador of Love. The roses are typical of old unhybridized garden roses, chubby with pastel pinks and contrasting accents. FYI, the yellowish tint at the bottom of the watercolor is much less than shown.This piece measures aprox 13.75 x 25 inches in the yard long or panel format. Framed in a vintage Juhl burnished gold frame with an inner beaded accent, and raised scrollwork at the edges. Although hard to see, the beading and scrolls have a sort of dusted pink coloring, matched to perfection by the roses in the painting. The frame is also in VG condition. Hang it up anywhere for a pop of color, it displays just magnificently.
