416 Sold Fanny Currey 1848-1917 - Watercolour - Helleborus 1887

This is a wonderful painting by Frances Wilmot Currey or Fanny Currey who was an Irish horticulturalist and watercolour painter. A founding member of Ireland's first amateur drawing society, the Water Colour Society of Ireland, Currey was widely exhibited in Ireland and Britain. Currey was born at Lismore Castle and was a friend  of Mildred Anne Butler. This watercolour of Helleborus with original framing label on the verso is a rare item and I was fortunate to locate it here in Ireland in great condition. Signed and Dated 1887.
