Description & Technical information

An exhibition of thirty watercolours by Sigismond Jeanès, held at the art gallery of the John Wanamaker department store in New York in 1921, led one critic to note that ‘These paintings, of Venice, the Dolomites, the côte d’azure, and other romantic spots of France and Italy, are characteristic of this great master of the water-color medium. Rarely does one see color combined with line to produce effects of such power. In oil they would be remarkable pictures, in water color they are prodigious.’
