PAIR OF signed ink drawings with pencil underneath, each 7 1/2" by 6 1/2" and 13 1/2" by 11 1/2" as identically framed, the subjects famous clipper ships of the 19th century "Gamecock" and "Cutty Sark", each bearing a signature at lower right that could be interpreted as a "G" inside a square. Found in Maine, and said to have come from a Kennebunkport home, the artist who created the drawings might remain a mystery. I thought perhaps the noted American marine illustrator Gordon Grant (1875-1962) might be a likely candidate, but to date have not seen works from his hand signed in this manner. On the reverse of one drawing is a pencil sketch of an old time wagon drawn by horses, the word "Cornell" at the back end of the wagon. Condition of the drawings is excellent. The silvery frame of "Cutty Sark" has chips from lower left and lower right corners. Would appreciate an email if anyone has ideas as to who the artist might be. .
