    Type of painting

    I have an piece of art by a listed artist, Felix Cogen. When I bought it at an estate sale in MA, around 1987, I thought it was a watercolor as it is under glass but not matted. When I looked through a torn place on the back it is painted on canvas. This was painted around 1900. Did they have the ability to do a watercolor on canvas? It is too early for acrylic. It is a marvelous painting.

    You can do water colour on canvas if you prepare it. It also could be egg tempera. enjoy the painting.
