Portrait Mrs. E.R Le Marchant
(Sold as a Pair with portrait of Captain Evelyn R. Le Marchant)

Mixed Media on Paper  Dated 1906 
29 3/4 x 41 Inches  47 x 35 Inches Framed 
Signed LR: W. Andresen, Plymouth 

This charming and distinguished looking couple still survive in the radiance of their youth captured for all time by the Plymouth portraitist W. Andresen. Although we know little about the artist, his skill is evident in the fine quality of these images.

Captain Evelyn R. le Marchant, commander of his Britannic majesty's battleship NILE, posed for this portrait in Plymouth, England in January 1906. His vessel, one of the earliest battleships to operate without sails, is shown anchored in the background. The following month his lovely wife Edith posed for her portrait. These two fine images show an interesting balance with the man of the sea in his element and his shoreside wife surrounded by her garden.

Both paintings are very well done in watercolor with added body color, pencil, and charcoal. Their condition is outstanding and both are mounted in their original period frames with antique glass.
