Great Paintings

R and I were at a car boot sale at the weekend and these two images were in a box of paperwork, the rest of which I have to say was fairly rank. I'm not sure what the dealer who had them thought they were but they are actually monochrome watercolours. Suffice it to say the guy who sold them to me seemed to think they were prints.

There's real quality to both of them. The woman I think is wonderful and unusual that the monochrome is red. The other is an image of Joseph being sold into slavery by his brothers and, I think, an exceptionally find piece of mid-nineteenth century watercolour painting. Very chuffed to have found them!
