Watercolor and gouache on paper scene of young trees along a bucolic dirt road in a hilly landscape, 12" by 15", (19 1/2" by 23" as framed), signed at lower right "C .GRANT DAVIDSON", and signed again in longhand in a margin area, dated there 1894. This is a work by CHARLES GRANT DAVIDSON (1865-1945), an American artist based out of New York who painted oil and watercolor scenes in the northeastern states. He is often confused with a British artist by the same name. This painting was mounted, apparently by the artist himself, at the time it was created. The light olive green mat likely dates to a later time, as does the frame. The painting is clean but there is some foxing especially at upper right, and browned areas, one small one near the top of the central tree and a small dark brown mark in that upper right sky. Allow for reflections in a few images.
