A HAND PAINTED WATERCOLOUR OVER PRINT.
Crimean War Scene of The Battle of Sebastapol,
after the original painting in 1861 by artist Hipolyte Bellange and later published by leading French 19th century art dealership Goupil & Cie.
This fine hand finished example is stunning re the quality of overpainting,as there are no real signs of this picture ever being a plain chromo print.
Finished in an early Victorian half inch oak frame and safely preserved under glass.
The condition is very good throughout and retains the sharp colours and clarity as good as any original watercolour painting.
This example has a copy of the artist signature in the lower left corner,behind which is stamped the company name Goupil,who produced this item.
In all a very interesting early Cimean war picture,of which few survive and would be an excellent collectors item retaining a visual record of life at war during this period.
The painting is titled "The Two Friends".
