Original Antique French Watercolor from France dated 1911

An original antique French perspective watercolor executed for a class at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, France dated 1911. The wall bracket illustrated here shows a view from the front, top, side and three quarter view that was a necessary component for a degree in the Decorative Arts. The superb execution of this drawing (the work on paper employs both pencil and oil pastel) gives the reasson for its multitude of stamps identifying the date, the class, the department and the score it received in the exhibition competition. The drawing is signed in the lower right by R Mourgue and we know she was female because she was in the department for "juenes filles". The work on paper has been mounted on a board and sealed between the board and a sheet of clear glass with the edges wrapped with tape. This method of framing was chosen to focus attention on the work and its subject matter. The views that depict the bracket from various directions are quite compelling and the addition of so much information about its origin adds considerably to its appeal.
