QUESTION: Dear Dan,  You stated that your range of expertise did not
go beyond 1940. These are not your exact words, but as l understand it you do not critique artwork beyond 1940. Am l correct? Aquarell is a term used commonly in Europe. What
l may have is a pen and ink dwg. with watercolor ???
It is typical of Feininger's, Boats in Harbors work.
         ??????  Jim

Answer
Dear Jim, After 37 years in the art business I am familiar with aquarell, but was not sure what you ment by "INK & AQURELL", as there is also an aquatint.
My extensive art reference library covers the 17th through 19th centuries, I would need another $175,000 to add Modern and Contemporary art reference, therefore my cutoff is 1940.
There are other experts at allexperts that cover your area, just look at their profiles
regards,
Dan
