Lilacs Watercolour by Liberty's Irene Holdway (pg601)

This is a very pretty painting and a very special find. It is a beautifully painted still life watercolour of a glass jar filled with lilac blooms with a book and small blue glazed pot beside it. It was painted by Irene Holdway FRSA (Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.) Irene was an accomplished and well known flower artist who produced most of her work from the 1920s to the 1950s. During this time, she was also the chief fabric designer for Liberty's of London. This wonderful example of her work dates to the early 1950s and is set behind a chocolate coloured mount within a pretty limed effect wooden frame. The reverse of the painting bears a label with the title of the painting 'Mauve Lilacs' W.C. (for watercolour) and the artist's name and address, with the original price of £40 - a huge amount of money in those days! The painting isn't signed and this was quite usual for her, very few of her paintings were signed but the presence of the original label affords the correct attribution.

A very pretty painting of these delicate and fragrant blooms, a firm favourite in an English cottage garden.

The frame is approximately 17" by 21". The frame has age-related wear and some small spot markings.
