Found in Connecticut, this beautifully drawn still life features poinsettia in a blue and white vase, other props including a Greek or Russian icon, a book and a plate, the work signed at lower right by artist Charlotte Newton. There is an askart listing for an artist of that name, born in Missouri in 1839, a resident of Los Angeles by 1880, who passed away in 1914. The presence of the poinsettia leads me to believe that this might well be a work by this California artist, but it is difficult to be certain of this, as I see few other examples by a Charlotte Newton. What is certain is that this is a nicely crafted watercolor by a talented hand, in very good condition. The piece measures 29" by 23 1/2" framed. Allow for reflections in the glass, and there is a shadow at top that is not on the actual art itself,
