South African School, 19th Century
A view of Cape Town from the water
Indistinctly signed and possibly dated ‘79’ (lower right)
Watercolour on card with some body colour
22 x 29.1/2 in. (56 x 75 cm.)
Though it is difficult to decipher the signature, this topographical study is obviously by a good hand executed confidently. It is an early view of Cape Town of grand proportions and as such is quite rare.
