M.Daniels (c1900)
`Girl Peeling Apples`
A haunting watercolour depicting a servant girl peeling apples outside the back door of what appears to be a country house. I would imagine painted at around the end of the 19th Century when the influence of the Barbizon School and the depiction of ordinary country people was very much in vogue. Possibly a French subject. The painting is signed lower right - appears to be `M. Daniels` though is fairly indistinct. This may well be by Maureen Daniels who was painting watercolour portraits around 1900 though I cannot be sure. Very nice original gilt frame with new mount.
