Watercolor of a classic English church, the Holy Trinity Church, in the park-like autumnal setting of world-famous Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of everything Shakespeare, of course. The final resting places of Shakespeare and Ann Hathaway are actually in this church. The water which appears as a small pond or lake is the River Avon. This piece measures 10 1/4" by 14 3/8 " (16 3/4" by 21" nicely framed), and is signed at lower left "R. W. Sayle", who was a local painter there. The artist has deftly captured the beauty of a day in late fall, the distant steeple nearly swallowed by the flaming trees. Interestingly, despite the quality of the work, there is not much information to be found on the artist. A kind collector in England identified that this scene is in that famous English town, and he said he also owns a work by the artist, that work depicting Ann Hathaway's cottage. The work is in fine condition with the exception of some abrasion scratches in and adjacent to the tree to the left of the steeple---the kind of damage that can result from past broken glass incidents. The white spot about 1/4" in size near the top of the tree is actually missing paper but could easily pass for light passing through the branches--not a significant issue. Mat and framing are clean so this is ready for the wall.
