Hi,
I am looking for assistance in determining the authenticity of the watercolor shown in the included images. The signature looks like some I've seen but not as much like others. In the matted area it measures 8 x 12 in. however the image covers an 11 x 14 paper with the difference covered by the mat. It's definitely older. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
Regards,
Bill

I don't know the artist, but judging from these examples
https://bidtoart.com/en/find-artist/edward-emerson-simmons/81642?limit=100
it seems very unlikely that this watercolor would be painted by Simmons.
It is very rigid - look at the buoy!

Regards,
Vietato

I agree. Sadly it is an incompetent fake, or an exercise in copying by an amateur artist.
