Watercolour over Pencil – unsigned – bought at auction by Anthony J Sargeant



This came as part of the £95 auction lot that Tony bought a few weeks ago. It is unsigned and indeed unfinished but the sitter has a certain “Jane Austen” era look – A paper label on the back of the old frame identifies her as “Catherine Isabella (born 1799 died 1870) wife of The Rev Henry Perceval” who was one of the brothers of the 19th Century British Prime Minister Spencer Perceval.
