Attributed to Paul Sandby. Painting measures 5 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches. 1800's. A vibrant and energetic painting despite the gray palette. Paul Sandby, the brother of Thomas Sandby, was an English engraver and painter. He began his artistic career as a landscape painter and draftsman for the Scottish military. As a printmaker, Sandby popularized the use of aquatint, and was considered to be the father of British watercolors. In 1768 the brothers were both among the twenty-eight of the original members of the Royal Academy.

This is the third watercolor and gouache painting that we recently acquired.  All park scenes, all painted on a blue toned paper, nicely framed with archival materials.  We are unsure who this artist was, most likely one of the mid 1930's American Illustrators.  The image measures 8 1/4X5 1/4 inches. Unexamined out of the frame.  Probably a view in Central Park N.Y.
