Cottage by Lake Miniature - Original early 20th-century watercolour painting


An original early 20th-century watercolour painting, Cottage by Lake Miniature.

A sweet watercolour of a charming rural scene, in miniature. On buff-coloured paper.

Age toning. There are short closed tears at the lower corners, and small paper remnants to the corners on the verso from having historically been laid down.
7.8cm x 12.4cm.

Miniature art has a unique appeal. Miniatures became especially popular in Europe in the 16th century, and became increasingly popular in the 17th and 18th centuries. Condensed into a small composition, the key components of a view can be used to communicate the effect of an entire landscape.
