I just bought this (to me, gorgeous!) Art Nouveau watercolor yesterday and would really love to know the name of the talented artist (or illustrator). As you can see by the scans it's clearly signed "F.A.B." and dated 1925 (so it could also be classified as being from the "Art Deco" era), but that's all I know. This original watercolor measures 9 x 7 inches, and is way more beautiful in person than appears on the scans (which unfortunately aren't quite sharp enough to provide fine detail). I get the impression that it could perhaps be the original watercolor that appeared as a print in a children's book (fairy tale?) because the lady's hair very strategically covers her breasts and nether region.
Be that as it may, I would really appreciate hearing your thoughts on who might have painted it.
Thanks in advance!
