The real name of the artist is Nicolas Markovitch, Serbian architecte who
lived in France.He painted a lot of suisse landscape, italian lakes and
a lot of monuments in Paris and in France.
I have a lot of original aquarels and reproductions( I have the Matterhorn)
He worked a lot with Stehli brother and was one of the best aquarellist
at the time.
He signed always Markovitch for the originals aquarels, Marc for the reproductions and Philippe for painting flowers.
He died in Bourg La Reine in the suburb of Paris in 1965 or 1966.
He paint a lot also for books ( edition Alpina ).
