    An Original Ink and Watercolor Study of The Great Temple at Abusimbal by Frederick Catherwood

    [Frederick Catherwood (1799-1854)]. Unsigned Ink and Watercolor Drawing. [N.p., n.d., C. 1824]. Approximately 13 x 18 inches.
    This piece is a study for the finished watercolor, which hangs in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. On plain paper, mounted onto cardboard. A vertical tear near the center, some edgewear, some toning and mild soiling, tape residue to verso. Small piece (less than one inch) detached, but present at top left corner. The drawing is unsigned, but believed to be the work of Frederick Catherwood, executed at the same time as another, signed Catherwood in this auction. Original works by Catherwood are known to be extremely scarce.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
