An original 19th-century watercolour painting on pith, Garden of Gethsemane.
This unusual painting on pith depicts a representation of the Garden of Gethsemane at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. Whilst the pith paper is of Chinese origin, the painting has the appearance of being a souvenir from elsewhere. Laid down on pale green backing paper with original satin mounting ribbon.
Unsigned. Inscribed lower centre: "Garden of Gethsemane".
Generally in fine condition, there are a small number of nicks to the pith as shown and minor marks to the corners.
9.5cm x 14.4cm.
