Edwardian Interior Scene by Clarence F. Underwood
This is an original gouache on artist’s paper painting by American artist and illustrator Clarence F. Underwood. An emotional family portrait, we see a group of solemn men and women seated opposite an older woman, all looking forlorn and sad. We have been unable to pinpoint the exact usage of this piece, but assume it was likely published as an interior illustration in a magazine.
This watercolor is housed behind glass in a vintage carved gold painted wood gesso frame. Signed by Underwood in the lower left corner.
