Original watercolour landscape in Pornic, France.Pornic, France: [no date] Stock Code: 131043
A striking example of Cummings's poetic artwork, unusually signed and located by him on the front, and notable for its dreamlike delineation and almost Fauvist colouring. The rustic tower depicted may be one of the many windmills of Brittany, where Cummings visited, painting several rustic scenes.
Cummings's daughter gave the entire contents of her father's art studio to Luethi-Peterson Camps (founded 1948) for them to sell as fundraisers. The sale was handled by Gotham Book Mart and this example derives from that same collection.
Single sheet (260 x 210 mm), watercolour scene to recto only, signed and located "Cummings, Pornic" at the foot. Pencil stock number from Gotham Book Mart to verso.
Excellent condition. Presented float mounted in a handmade gold leaf frame with conservation acrylic.
