Framed Signed & Dated Original Vintage Modern Watercolor Painting-on-Paper Titled “Red Bead” From 1997 Created by Madison, Wisconsin Artist Helen Klebesadel (B 1953-) Displaying a Wooden Plank Floor w/ a Single Red Bead Accompanied by Its Shadow! - image 1 of 16

HERE’S A FRAMED SIGNED AND DATED ORIGINAL VINTAGE MODERN WATERCOLOR PAINTING-ON-PAPER TITLED “RED BEAD” CREATED BY MADISON, WISCONSIN ARTIST HELEN KLEBESADEL (B. 1953-) THAT DISPLAYS A WOODEN PLANK FLOOR WITH A SINGLE RED BEAD ACCOMPANIED BY ITS SHADOW!

Please Note: This beautifully-rendered watercolor painting still retains its original white matting, dark-stained wood frame, plexi front, and paper backing. To this end, there is an original gallery label on the backside that reads:

Grace Chosy Gallery
1825 Monroe Street
Madison, Wisconsin 53711
608-255-1211

Artist: Helen Klebesadel
Title: Red Bead
Year: 1997
Art Medium: Watercolor
Edition #:
Paper Size: 6” X 8”
Image Size: 5” X 7”
Frame Size: 12” X 16”
Price: $250.00
Item Id: 9354

Dimensions: The painting itself that can be viewed within the matte board measures approximately four and one half inches (4 1/2”) in height by seven inches (7”) in width but is most likely larger as it extends underneath the matte board. The overall dimensions of the dark-stained wood frame are approximately ten inches (10”) in height by thirteen and one eighth inches (13 1/8”) in width.

Signature: The watercolor painting itself is signed “H. Klebesadel” along the bottom right corner area. And again, there is an original gallery label on the frame’s backside (see information above). Please Note: In addition to the larger gallery label on the frame’s backside, there is a smaller additional paper label underneath the gallery label, as well as another version of the artist’s signature.

Condition: The painting is in excellent and clean condition. The white matte board is generally in excellent and clean condition with a couple of very small markings. The plexi front has some small surface scratches, mostly concentrated at the top right corner of the painting’s image. And the wooden frame is generally in very good and clean condition with small scuffs and scratches here and there. But overall, still a nice example of the artist’s original watercolor painting!

Domestic buyer pays calculated shipping for secure packing and USPS priority within the United States. I no longer ship internationally due to the high volume of scams taking place. Sorry.
