[Day, F. Holland- Original Watercolor by Day] Keats' House at Wentworth Place, Hampstead

A superb, finely executed small watercolor painting by F. Holland Day, noted bookman, publisher, artist and co-founder of Copeland and Day in Boston of Keats' House at Wentworth Place in Hampstead. 5 1/2 x 4" on watercolor paper. Executed most likely ca. 1880's-1890's, when Day had his large Keats collection. Captioned in white box with white lettering lower right, with "Hampstead" mispelled as "Hamstead," a typical error by Day, who was not known for spelling. From the collection of Tom Boss, noted Day collector and expert, and before that, directly from the Joe Kraus collection, bibliographer of Copeland and Day. Fine condition. A wonderful piece of Keatsiana, especially considering Day's fascination with Keats.
