Adams, Hervey Cadwallader RBA, NS
Rustic Still Life, gouache, signed l/r,
15.74" x 19.87" unframed.
About the Painting: The painting is on thin paper which has been laid down to board, and the board has warped. Despite the warping, the painting is in good condition and should frame nicely and flatten with a good backing. It is a pleasing composition with very good color and a masculine appeal.
