Why We Love It

Henry Gasser painted humble scenes of American life, and this watercolor of Cape Ann harbor is a quintessential example of his work. As this painting clearly demonstrates, he excelled in the medium of watercolor. He used the transparency of this material to his advantage in order to capture the vibrant blues and reds of this winter scene, while leaving areas of the paper untouched to represent the brilliant white of the snow. 

The Value

This exceptionally vibrant and fresh watercolor by Henry Gasser offers a great opportunity to own a work by the artist at a great price. The excellent provenance and period frame both add to the watercolor’s overall value.
