Auction Watercolor Finds


Monogrammist LK: Verkiebtes Paar aus Schubertzeit (ca. 1900-1901)

K. Hajek - Wiener Sanger Knabe .. ca, 1918

I had a chance to wonder through the watercolor sections of the European eBay sites and pulled out a few accomplished works (at least I thought they were accomplished). Academic nudes in this medium are few and far between so I had to settle for mostly landscapes with a few figurative works. There are a couple of gouache (above) included. I have included two WW II illustrations mainly because of the action and accomplished drawing. When I get a chance I may re-post the few academic nudes in my collection just to illustrate that academic nudes do exist in the watercolor medium.
