I am offering for auction a superb pair of watercolours of street scenes in Tétouan, Morocco. Painted by listed artist Joseph Milner Kite, 1862-1946. Both signed.
The paintings are in good order. Please look at all pictures for an accurate idea of condition. Mounted, unframed.
Joseph Kite was born in Taunton, Devon in 1862, the son of a chemist. He moved to London in 1881, then to Antwerp, where he was a student at the Academie Royale, 1881–83. He spent four seasons in the ‘Antiek’ class. In 1883, he moved to Paris, studying at the Academie Julian in the atelier of Bouguereau and Laurens. He also met Sir John Lavery there. Kite made painting excursions to Normandy and Pont-Aven in 1886, Grez-sur-Loing in 1889, and lived in Tangiers, 1887-89. In 1889, Kite settled permanently in Paris, living in Montparnasse. During the late eighties, he exhibited in England, and at the Paris Salon, and was an exhibitor at the Salon National in the nineties.
