This is a wonderful watercolor painting of South Bristol Harbor, Maine by listed artist and art teacher Frederic Schuler Briggs A.W.S. The artwork is in good condition and sits behind double-matting and plexiglass in a rustic frame. There are some minor scratches and marks on the plexiglass that do not distract from the artwork. It is signed lower right by the artist.
