Sara Rosa Keezer Gouache, DAC Collection



Please see another painting listed later by Keezar. They’d make a lovely pair.

7″ x 9 1/2″ watercolor/gouache on artist board was probably done in the 1930’s. This is a charming painting; however, there is a lot of “foxing” most clearly seen on the white border.  With a mat covering the border, the painting would be acceptable for framing without restoration. Any foxing directly on the painting itself is hardly noticeable. Buyer pays for shipping.
