About this Item

An extraordinary group of original artwork from the early twentieth century, with short text written on a few of the cards. The artwork was all done by a B. Vinya and sent to a D. Enrique Montagut in Alicante, which is on the Mediterranean Coast of Spain. Subjects of the watercolors include an elderly guitarist, a young family looking off to the sea's horizon where there is the fishing craft of the father and husband, a picturesque old mill, two country landscapes, several sailing vessels, a European woman dressed like a Geisha, lovers on coastal rocks and a woman with a fan with a Venetian backdrop. The three ink or pencil drawings are stylistically quite varied, with elements of Daumier in one, more contemporary caricature in another, and yet the third a good-hearted depiction of carousing monks. Each of the pictures is of a quality worthy of framing, and cumulatively they make for an uncommon and pleasing oeuvre. Bookseller Inventory # 002440

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
