Small Watercolors

The small watercolors were part of Elias Oliver Amador's earlier work, during which he developed his self-effacing last names only signature Amador Sandoval. They are characterized by a dreamy, impressionistic style. Most probably were painted between 1930-1950 although some might be earlier. They measure 10" x 14" unless specified otherwise. These watercolors are stamped on the back by the Mexican government for exportation purposes, dated 1963.
