Cyril Hardy
The Quayside, Holland

We are pleased to be offering a pair of superb watercolours by Cyril Hardy. We are selling on behalf of a customer and they have been in her family we for a number of years. Both scenes are of Holland and we believe in their original frames with the framers label verso 'John Matheison and Co.' Edinburgh, who were in business in the 1930s/40s. A fine pair but can be purchased separately.

Watercolour    10 1/2" x 7"    Signed


Cyril Hardy

Cyril Hardy which we believe is a pseudonym for Noel Harry Leaver and there is much discussion as to the identity of the artist Cyril Hardy however, it is well known that an artist who was contracted to paint for a certain gallery would produce work in another name to sell privately.
