A lovely watercolor sketch of a basket of roses set inside an oak frame, signed R. Exbrayat. Pink, yellow and white roses in various stages of bloom rest inside of a brown wicker basket. Everything is painted sparingly, without an excess of detail. Instead, the painter competently built up the forms with a solid handling of light and color. Dark washes in the the background help push the flowers into the foreground. Cold pressed paper lends a consistent texture throughout. A dark brown simple oak frame completes the piece.
Condition: Very good. Minor age wear on frame.
