FRENCH, Annie (artist). "The Bride" [original watercolour]. 1910.

A stunning original pen, sepia ink, and watercolour painting by Annie French on laid paper, image size 88 x 123mm, float mounted and presented within a double-recessed ivory-coloured acid-free mount with a five-line hand-ruled border in light blue and gilt, in a handsome antique-gilt wooden frame (frame size 390 x 360mm); the highly detailed sepia-ink drawing, with minute filigree detailing in characteristic Annie French style, depicting a young and beautiful blond girl, "The Bride", en profil à gauche, surrounded by a billowing cloud-like white veil seamed with flowers and carrying a charming and colourful wedding bouquet; in bright, clean condition.
Annie French (1872-1965) was a Scottish painter, engraver, designer, and illustrator with an exquisite highly-patterned linear technique. Her Art Nouveau detailing was very similar in style to the work of her near contemporary, Jessie M. King. French was also associated with the Glasgow School, where she studied between 1896 to 1902, firmly establishing herself as one of the Glasgow Girls.
Provenance: Sir James French, brother of the artist.
