Emil Rumpf 50+ Original Watercolors Sketches Folio Album Art Military Sketchbook
1860. Overall very nice condition ! Album front cover has a tear almost half way down the edge, which can easily be repaired if desired. The value is in the art itself. Approximately 52 artworks , of which half are finished watercolors, and the other half are sketches that were never finished. Most of the sketches are very well done, and complete and were just never finished by the artist. ( a handful of artworks are in an envelope attached to the album cover. There is also a letter in French explaining information on one of the pages. There are a few tears to edges of the brown paper, again not affecting the art itself. This is a very rare opportunity to own something very special. I think that seeing how this artist started a sketch and went through the steps to complete his watercolors paintings is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the collector. Each watercolor and sketch has footnotes and / or paragraphs explaining in French, which I cannot read. Please view the photos. RARE Original folio of drawings by Emil Rumpf!
