Fine Early 20th Century Folk Art Watercolor Copy of John Elder Civil War Painting
Fine Early 20th Century Folk Art Watercolor Copy of John Elder Civil War Painting – This extremely well executed folk art watercolor is a near exact copy of famed, American artist, John Elder’s painting entitled: “Confederate Soldier with Captured Union Mount”, which is an oil on canvas work, signed and dated 1865. This original Elder painting sold recently for over $13,000. This watercolor copy is in fine condition, in its original, period gilt frame, with its original glass. The colors of the work remain vibrant, as well. The painting is signed and dated, in the lower right corner: “R T Daniel 1904”. We have not been able to establish who Daniel was, but he certainly did a nice job in copying Elder’s work. The painting measures as follows: Frame – Height: 26” x Width: 24”; Sight Size – Height: 15.5” x Width: 12”.
