Offered for sale is this outstanding, original Phil Capen watercolor painting c.1982. Depicting a street scene in Frederiksted, U.S. Virgin Islands, this is done on heavy, 30" x 22" watercolor paper and is in impeccable condition. According to a hand written note on the rear of the frame, it is titled 'Along Strand Street' and was originally purchased for $1250 in 1982. It has been professionally framed and matted, though shown below, outside of its frame to eliminate glare and enhance the detail in the photos. Capen's work is highly sought after with prints routinely selling for $100's and the opportunity to purchase an original is scarce.

From an inquiry concerning the approximate value of this painting, I received this reply from the artist:

"I was excited to recieve the message from the webgallery about this painting. Though it has been almost 30 years since I painted and sold it I remembered the image before I downloaded it. My wife and I lived for about 3 years in St. Croix where I taught in the public high school and began painting. This was 1969 thru '72. Nine years later we made a trip back and stayed with friends for a few weeks. This painting was the result of that trip. It was sold by the Science Museum in Miami during their annual art show fund raiser. We lived in Miami 1979 - 1999.It should be valued between 5,000. and 6,000. I would never do a watercolor of that size and complexity again, it's too hard on the back which is why I switched to oil on canvas ten years ago."

This will be professionally packed and shipped w/great care, either in its frame or without. Please email to discuss shipping details.
