Beautiful historic watercolor painting on paper The paper is from an old sketch book by M. Grumbacher.. The artist is a listed artist,a scientist and geologist, chemist, geo chemist and botanical painter and illustrator. His name is Jerome D. Laudermilk ( 1893 - 1956 ) an American Listed Artist, and this is 100% accurate in provenance, though he did not sign the painting, he did personalize notes in the border of painting, in his own hand writing. Condition is very good and clean on actual painting and good condition in blank margins. He intentionally matted most of his paintings, and paper was NOT archival or acid free in the 1930's, so there are some strong age patina's marks on the front and back of painting. I wrote the provenance in back in pencil. The paper matte he adhered is very fragile and matte has a serious crack on lower left edge, which is ready to split and crack ( this is NOT the painting ). His method, was to adhere the matte's on top of the painting, and glue on the top blank margin only. Size is approximately 5 inches by7.5 inches. Copyright and all rights reserved by artist.
