Antique Wallace Nutting Photograph Hand Coloured The Corner By The Gate c1915


Brand Etsy

This is a hand coloured photograph by Wallace Nutting titled The Corner By The Gate, purportedly taken of a cottage in Ireland. This appears to be a rare photograph. Nutting photographs were originally taken by Wallace Nutting who produced black and white prints from the original negative. Artists would then hand colour them with watercolours, a rather time consuming task that required a lot of patience and skill. Note all of the fine detailing on this particular image - just the detail on the thatched roof is mind numbing. This photo is in its original wood and gesso frame under glass - the original backing paper is still present although partially missing and the original framers label Edlingtons 146 Mansfield Montreal is affixed to the bottom left corner. The photo measures 7 3/8 by 9 3/8 while the frame measures 13 5/8 by 15 5/8. It is in very good condition with no fading or damage to the frame - this has been very well preserved over the last 100+ years.
This is a lovely display piece - really a work of art with the intricate hand colouring!
