Joseph Pennell (American, 1857-1926). Watercolor and ink on paper titled "Wells Cathedral from N.E.," depicting a view of Wells Cathedral in Wells, Somerset, across rolling farm fields. Signed and titled along the lower left.
Sight; height: 17 in x width: 21 1/2 in. Framed; height: 24 1/4 in x width: 29 in.


As shown in the listing image, there is heavy foxing throughout the painting, most heavily along the right upper corner. There is foxing throughout the matte as well. Although it is not inspected out of frame, it seems reasonable to discern that there is mat burn, considering the condition of the mat. The paper is toned. There are no visible tears, creases, or losses. No visible sing of restoration, when inspected under UV light. Wear to the frame. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email with any condition questions.
