Artist: Tony Binder
Oil Size: 23.8cm x 38cm
Frame Size: 43.3cm x 58.5cm
Year: 1880’s – 1940’s
The back is tatty and the label on the back reads, M. J. Bennett, Ltd…..Importers and Decorators……Karangahape Road, Newton, Broadway Newmarket. The rest has fallen off and the brown paper has with age fallen to bits. Fine nails are bent and rusted. The picture is titled “Caravan Resting At the Gates – Jerusalem”. Artist Tony Binder.
It looks to be a watercolour, very nice scene of camels and men outside a ancient gate, a very nice taste of when people did the yearly trip to the holy land. Glassed and framed. Another pencil mark in the right hand corner, this looks the real thing but I suspect it’s a PRINT. Very interesting.
The art is In its original condition while the frame is a bit loose for somehow, but no trouble to hang up at all.
