This is a signed original watercolor painting, signed by the well known and listed California artist, Robert Landry.

It's authenticity is guaranteed without exception.

It is not a giclee, print or copy of any kind.

It was part of a collection of original watercolor paintings originally purchased from the estate of one of Landry's students, Nancy Louise Hickman.

Robert Landry is a well known and listed mid 20th Century California artist whose original paintings have sold at auction and through galleries for years for prices ranging up to thousands of dollars each.

The collection was purchased a few decades ago. It consisted of both signed and unsigned works by Robert Landry, Nancy Louise Hickman and other artists of the period (early-mid 20th century).

The entire collection has been kept in secure storage for 40-50 years or more. Most of the paintings have never been exposed to light which has kept the colors as bright and vibrant as the day they were painted. Vintage watercolors often tend to be faded from exposure to too much light or heat. Additionally, none of these paintings have been mounted -so there are no acid mat issues either.

These are all pristine, unmounted paintings ready to be mounted and displayed for the first time in half a century.

It is not on the painting itself. This is an original painting - not a print!
