Featuring a beautiful watercolor by Léon Bonvin (1834-1866) from the Walters' collections, this 19th century artist never received the same notoriety as his half-brother Francois (1817-1887), a well-regarded realist painter. Few sources have been able to convey the image of this misunderstood and ill-fated artist. In order to make a living, he took over his father's inn in Vaugirard. There he painted watercolors far from the gaze of the Parisian artistic and cultural milieu. He found subjects in his immediate environment: bunches of wild flowers, still lifes, views of the still rural and working-class plain on the outskirts of Paris. This work is one of many acquired, or commissioned, by William T. Walters himself.

This high quality print comes matted for easy framing. Print measures 11 x 14" including matting.
