Thomas Hale-Sanders (British, 1880-1906) was known for his waterfront scenes. This wonderful watercolor imparts the feeling of a misty early morning. Very little research is available on this artist. A search of auction records found his high price for an artwork at auction of $3,025.00, and one for $2,900.00. Naturally there are a number with scattered prices. When one finds an original artwork that really appeals to you, it can not be duplicated. A pride of ownership exists when you have an original.
