Maurice Pellerier

Maurice Pellerier; 1875-....  French naval painter; water colourist and etcher. Little is known of this artist other than he was active in Concarneau, France in the 1920's and was active in the Artistic Union of the Friends of Concarneau as indicated in the catalogue of 1931. Was known to have exhibited May 22-June 10, 1937.

A rare aquatint from a little known artist whose paintings rarely come up for auction. An original etching which is bright and unfaded.  A fine, sharp impression in coloured inks with excellent detail,  the image measuring approximately 24 cms. x 19 cms. (9½  x 7½  ins.) on a medium wove ‘Rives’ watermarked paper sheet, size 32 cms. x 25 cms. (12½   x 10 ins.)

Pencil signed in lower margin.

Unmounted and unframed, blank on the reverse, the condition of the image and sheet is good with the title having been added to the lower left corner and handling marks condusive with age.
