ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

Frederick Gordon Crosby (1885-1943)

‘After the Conflict’.

Original watercolour heightened with gouache, signed by the artist, dated circa 1919. Conservation mounted, framed and glazed.

Size: 13 x 11 inches (32 x 28 cm).

Crosby’s prowess as an artist is often thought to be restricted to the motor-racing circuits of Europe. This well executed work, possibly commissioned by the ‘Illustrated London News’, evidences his skill in other fields. The ruins of a French village after World War I, are being surveyed by an Allied despatch rider, the scene depicted in a suitably sombre colour palette.

Provenance:

James Barron collection, London
Victor Gauntlett collection, Gloucestershire

Price Code: Code SOLD
