Teardrop Memories

Size: 11 1/2" x 10 1/2"
Manufacturer: Selwa Kazimirez
Original Mourning watercolor painting of a young woman.
Kneeling with her head on tomb,
she mourns with Forget Me Not flowers in hand.
Dedicated, Selwa Kazimirez August 22 1914.

Died just about month after the assassination
of Archduke Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary,
by a Serbian nationalist Francis and World War One erupted.
The word, Wspomnienie, Polish for Remembrance
rests at bottom border.

The mausoleum stone chamber vault setting
is colored richly with sepia tones.
Sad, emotionally wrenching and dark.
Upon the swirling marble balusters cryptically written,
other non translated memorials are inscribed.
It really captures the spirit of deep loss and inconsolable grief.
Lovely feminine form, she appears to be of Noble birth.
This Memorial painting is in high continental Edwardian style.

An obscure coat of arms hangs on the wall of this crypt.
A brief internet search connects Selwa Kazimirez to
Polish General Andrew Thaddeus Bonventure Kosciusko
the Anglicesed name for the revolutionary War Hero.
aka Andrzej Tadeusz Bonawentura Kościuszko.
The connection remains unclear, but inquiries are being made.
Original matting shrouded by thick glass,
entombed by olive hue wooden frame.
An incredible work of original European Memento Mori watercolor art.
