Old early 20th century painting of a thin line of trees bordering a waterway, executed in a lovely impressionist palette with excellent handling of light, 17 1/2" by 21" as framed, signed in red at lower right corner "Chatterton". Though found in Ogunquit, Maine, in an art colony area where the well known American artist Clarence Chatterton was known to have painted, the signature does not resemble that of Chatterton, who was a student of Edward Hopper. I am unsure if this might be by a relative, or by this Chatterton, though atypically signed, so, I am offering it as a beautifully executed impressionist painting. Condition is excellent with the exception of a small puncture at center left, barely noticeable in the busy brushstrokes, and easily repaired. A wider gold frame would dramatically improve the presentation.
