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 all 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.
Another fine study of a Neapolitan lady - who is shown in traditional costume - she is carrying a large pail of water - or perhaps milk.
Again, it is painted in watercolour with slight traces of black under-drawing on wove paper
Sheet Size: 16.5 x 15 cm; Signed lower left: V Feneck
Inscribed lower right “No. 30” and below the image “Contadina de Villa Lago (provincial dell Acquila) nel Regno di Napoli
CONDITION: Good Condition. Nice bright colours.
These are of museum collection quality - and other similar costume studies are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
These are genuine watercolour studies by Feneck - and NOT later copies or reproductions. They are sold as original artworks - with all consumer rights applying. to the purchased.
