|Description: We offer an original watercolor by Bertha E. Perrie. It is 16” x 10 ¾” on thick wove paper and signed "B. E. Perrie" in ink at the lower right. This work closely resembles an oil painting in the collection of the Smithsonian. Perrie's handling of the reflection of the boat is fluid and confident; the mast of the boat soars out of the field of composition in this quintessential New England scene. Item #FA00187.
