ALDERSON, James Simpson [1856-1948]
“In the Studio”
watercolor on paper / 6 inches by 4 inches (approximately)
From the collection of Carl Wasserman comes this watercolor sketch by British artist James S. Alderson. When and where he acquired it, however, is unknown and likely to remain that way. Wasserman did travel to Great Britain at least once but whether this was purchased or traded during those visits is unclear. Along with other pieces used as instructional pieces in his studio classes, this was acquired at the time of Wasserman’s death.
