Watercolor on paper laid on board painting of roses and hollyhocks in an intimate garden enclosed by a wall or structure, 16 1/4" by 13" and 1 1/4" wide frame, unsigned, executed late 19th or early 20th century. The artist's mastery of watercolor is clear, but unfortunately he or she failed to sign the work, which resembles paintings by members of the Stannard family of watercolorists (Henry John Sylvester 1870-1951, Lilian 1877-1944, Theresa 1898-1947). An experienced English art dealer, having seen this online, feels the work could be by any number of artists, including George Samuel Elgood (1851-1943), Beatrice Parsons (1870-1955) and Ernest Arthur Rowe (1863-1922). On the reverse of the board in old hand in pencil is written "Brick Wall Sussex" ("Brick Wall" as two words). There is actually a locality in Sussex in southeast England known as Brickwall (one word) or Brick Wall, which is an historical old fine estate house and gardens that has been open to the public. Most likely this is a painting of that garden, though I suppose the inscription could be simply referring to the "brick wall" structure in the background. There's a light abrasion as shown but otherwise the painting is in good condition, despite having traveled without glass. The frame is old but tired and has wear as shown. This should be reframed with proper acid-free mat.
