Lovely watercolor on paper theorem painting of nosegay of flowers surrounding a scroll with a poem reading:
When geneal [genial]winds awake the flowers
And Spring birds warble through the grove
To seek the modest flowers I love.
Its dewy leaves and soft pure blofsom[blossom]
Th’o brighter flowers are still more fair
And while I breathe its sweet perfume
I’ll dream some fairy lingered there
It resides in a period wood veneer frame with a canted profile that measures 9" x 11." Condition is very good with some scratches to frame and some toning to paper. It is framed behind a nice bubbly piece of early glass.
