This is one os a small and very rare set of early 19th-century watercolour costume studies by the Maltese artist, Vincenzo Feneck. They are all on offer in my Iconic Edinburgh Online Store -

Feneck was born in Malta, and his delicate watercolour studies of national or local costume are keenly sought after by collectors.

These watercolours are in his customary small scale - they have never been framed for display and consequently, all the watercolour details remain bright and fresh on each design.

This is a fine costume study of an Algerian Lady wearing a tall pointed hat (or Sarma) & veil. She wears a traditional red and white Dress. She is shown accompanied by a little child.

A later drawing of a woman wearing a similar costume entitled “Jewish Woman of Algiers” by Louis Roguin is in the collection of the National Gallery of Scotland

This little watercolour has slight traces of black under-drawing and is on fine wove paper.

Sheet Size: 16 x 15 cm;

Signed lower left: V Feneck. Inscribed lower right “No 46” and below the image “Giudea di Algeri”.

These are of museum collection quality - and other similar costume studies are in the collection of the Met in New York.

CONDITION: with slight staining to the sheet along the left-hand edge. These are genuine watercolour studies by Feneck - and NOT later copies or reproductions. They are sold as original artworks - with all consumer rights applying.
