It's good, but not brilliant. Are those excavated Romans standing there in togas or statues or... ? I can't quite make it out. Probably sold for 650 thousand.
I love it. It seems to post-date its time, having an almost Impressionist style. It is very dreamy.
I'm with Paul on this. The dreamy quality suits the idea of a ruin. I'm sure whatever it went for is a bit outside my budget. I'll say half a million. He's not as well known for his watercolors, so I'm thinking it would go for less than one of oils.Lovin' Fragonard Friday! You've set a pretty high bar there.
I was just about to say the style was impressionist but Paul beat me to it! :O) I like it too, especially for the atmospheric quality it has and I LOVE the way Fragonard painted trees. :)Value... hmmmm..... lots! lol
I think it is lovey. I always admire artists who can work in watercolor. It is a wicked medium.
Ooh, I love it!
I do love it. Thank you, Lauren, for introducing me to Fragonard.
@ Tulip:No need to thank me! It would have happened sooner or later! :o)
I love it, Frognard is one of my favourite artists, but I do not regard it as one of his best. But I love how he used the watercolours in this, as stated above; it is very dreamy.
