Exceptional watercolorfrom the late nineteenth century. A truly exquisite painting; look closely to see the people on the lawn, the detail of flags flying, windows. The quality of paintingsuperb; master skill throughout -- perspective, detail beautiful use of colorblending together -- clearly a master painter.
The Chateau of Rambouillet is thecountry residence of the French presidents. Superb work that symbolizes the spirit of France in the 1800's. As the French 'Camp David' many foreign dignitaries have visited here -- from hunting parties with Kingsin the 1800's to relaxed weekends between heads of state today. What's astonishing about this painting is the incredible detail.Look closely at the groups of people on the lawn, a family picnicking, others enjoying the sunshine.... the details of the flats, the leaves on the trees.
