Stanford White (American, 1853-1906) pencil sketch with watercolor and gouache depicting a bird's eye view of the Valley of the Seine River, France. The composition extends across two sheets of paper, likely from a sketchbook. Unsigned; titled en verso. Housed under glass in a giltwood frame with thick white mat. Sight - 20" x 8"; frame - 26 1/2" x 14". Davis Galleries, New York label en verso. Note: Davis Galleries (1952-1973, now known as Davis & Langdale), conducted an exhibition of Stanford White's works on paper in 1963. Stanford White was best known for his iconic American Beaux-Arts period architecture and his salacious personal life (which ended with his murder at the hands of his lover Evelyn Nesbitt's millionaire husband, Harry Thaw). But he was also an accomplished picture frame designer and occasionally utilized his artistic training to paint landscapes such as this one.


Toning to paper, otherwise very good condition; frame surface has several spots of exfoliation, especially at edges.
