Watercolor on paper laid on board painting of a cottage, likely but not necessarily English, the traditional gated garden surrounding it, signed at lower right by artist "H R Fearnside". The name does not appear to be listed but the artist was talented. Colors are delicate and the sense of perspective is excellent. This charming work was purchased in Maine. Size inside the mat is 8 1/2" by 11 1/2" (17 1/2" by 21" in old gold frame). The mat is affixed to the watercolor, around the edges, in the old manner; the last image shows the browning of the board and mat. Frame has wear and losses consistent with its age.
