Watercolor with gouache highlights on paper painting 13 3/4" by 9 1/2" inside the mat, of a large and impressive castle on a hill, (possibly Windsor Castle near London), a pastoral landscape with figures in the foreground, signed in pencil at lower right "A WATT". There is a listing for an Arthur George Watt (1883-1935) but I doubt this be the same artist, as the techniques and style do not mesh and the dates are wrong; this drawing is earlier. The drawing is beautifully executed by a talented hand. Deer graze at left, a figure rests on a path at right and a woman, basket in hand, walks down the path. Smoke rises from a chimney of a small dwelling in the middle distance. The drawing is unframed and without glass but it has survived in good condition. The gold mat is glued down over the margins, in true 19th century English style. The paper is slightly wavy and buckled at left in a vertical manner, indicating that the center of the drawing is NOT glued firmly down. The drawing is ready for your frame. .
