Watercolor with Pen and Ink Showing A Riverside View of a Walled Medieval City
This 19th century watercolor with pen and ink is most likely Dutch, having been acquired in Holland. It shows a romantic scene of an attractive walled city with buildings and rooftops beyond a fortified wall with an open gate. Outside the wall, a knight in armor is riding on the beach.
Above the wall, we see the building and roofs of the city. One roof is painted with a lovely zigzag pattern, and a tower has a checkerboard pattern wall.
The painting is framed in a later painted wood frame.
Dimensions: 17.5″ wide x 13.5″ height x 1″ deep
