Eddlison/Eddleson/Eddelson [active 1890s]

[From the Community Collection, a public trust in Agincourt, Iowa]

EDDLESON / EDDLISON / EDDELSON, S. (active 1890s)

Mediæval City Gate

1895

watercolor / 7.7 inches by 10.9 inches

In this era of the selfie, the notion of being a slow and deliberate tourist might seem quaint. Recording your experience in watercolor (or should that be “watercolour”?) requires time and careful observation; it is the artistic counterpart of ‘stopping to smell the roses”. The signature is indistinct, but the subject is undoubtedly British, though many cities of Mediæval origin are likely candidates, possibly Yorkshire where the name “Eddleson” is quite common.

An early acquisition, the source is unrecorded.
