Northeast America, ca 1825-1850. Watercolor on woven paper. Brilliant, saturated colors. The artist rendered the scene in painstaking detail, filled with thousands of tiny little brush-strokes. The young child collects blue flowers along a stream in her gathering basket, likely to enliven the tiny house in the background, or perhaps for a larger home implied by the sturdy gate. A peaceful yet unusually bold colorful image. The gilt frame (with dusting wear at the bottom) may be original. Overall frame size about 20 inches x 16 5/8.
