Monogrammist "J.W.B." (19th century)

[Antique drawing, 19th century] View of a beach, made in 19th century by J.W.B., 1 p.

Picturesque landscape with a view of a beach, water with sailing boats and a small town and church in the background.

Monogrammed and dated ‘J.W.B. 76’ on lower right. Annotated ‘Copie Heroult’ on lower left.

Watercolours and body colour* on velin, 143 x 233 mm. Some traces of (oxidated?) underdrawing in watercolours or ink in the sky area. Small, hardly noticeable water stain, otherwise in excellent condition.

*Body colour is the use of opaque colours for highlights or dense, flat areas. It’s a technique that has been used in watercolour for centuries. Before Designers Gouache was introduced in 1937, the only method of achieving opacity was to use white on its own, or to use it to make tints of the watercolours. Body colour therefore refers to either tubes of gouache or the finished effect of opacity on a picture, whether white or coloured. [from: Winsor & Newton]
