I am hoping that the members are able to assist in identifying the attached monogram.

Medium - Watercolour
Size - 25cms x 18cms
Subject - Streets of Rouen with Cathedral in background.
Date - 19th century/early 20th century.

Thank you for any assistance.

Regards

Neil

looks like a combination of several letters like T, W, A, T and C or E.
C. or E. Watt maybe?

Haha, I admit :-) My idea was to list the letters I have read though. Ad

I've seen some maddeningly teasing monograms in my days, but this one beats 'm all...

Hello Arb and Adrian.

Thank you for your contribution. Looks like I am in for a long quest.

Watercolours of the Rouen cityscape and cathedral seem to have been a popular subject for English artists so I think, for the moment, I will persist with this line of investigation.

Thank you, once again, for your efforts.

Regards

Neil

I think it is very pretty. Any idea about the S. Ouen next to "Rouen"?

I came across this monogram today, while researching a painting.

I would appear that there are two contenders:-

William Edward Cooke - active 1872-1898, and
Edward William Cooke - 1811-1880.

The first image displays the monogram. This is from the Invaluable site and they claim it to be William Edward Cooke. Although not an exact match of the monogram, in the Rouen watercolour, it would appear that it may be a derivation thereof. I am also of the opinion, after comparing the artists work, that both the painting bearing the monogram and my painting are more in the style of Edward William Cooke, who also painted a number of watercolours featuring Rouen.

The second image of Abbeville, France is purported, by Artnet.de to be the work of Edward William while the last image, from Artvalue.com shows the Rue de la Tuile, Rouen also by Edward William. This painting was sold at The Winter Athenaeum Sale, Bath, Thursday, December 11, 2008 for 2880 GBP.

So, is there a possible match, monogram wise, and if so do we have it by William Edward or Edward William or, perhaps, neither.

Kind regards

Neil
