I bought this "antigue" etching at a local auction. I have found 2 possible names for the artist on this site - Martin Van Waning; 1889-1972 and Martin Van Waring; 1800-????. I believe the artist is probably the first Martin listed. He appears to be Dutch or from the Netherlands somewhere. The etching was described from the auction catalogue as being a scene with the Gresham Pre-Prep School in Holt Norfolk which has been in existance since about 1555.

I was wondering if anyone can translate the writing at the bottom of the etching - the one (Etching2) is obviously the artist's name but the other (Etching1) is probably the title of the etching or names the "scene" location.

Any help greatly appreciated. THANKS

The title is "Straatje te Scheveningen" (street in Scheveningen), a part of The Hague in the Netherlands.

Martin van Waning (1889-1972) seems to be the right artist:

Martin van Waring with only one sale is most likely a misreading of the name.

Here you have his full name by birth with "van" correctly written in only small letters:

PS. Since you write "Dutch or from the Netherlands somewhere" I would like to point out that Dutch people are from the Netherlands! Americans often seem to think that the Dutch are from Denmark - and the Danish from the Netherlands! That confusion is evident in many eBay ads.

When I said "He appears to be Dutch or from the Netherlands" I was just hoping to add in all the other countries associated with the Netherlands - I did not mean to dis-associate the Dutch from the Netherlands. :)

And being as the hand written title is "Straatje te Scheveningen" (street in Scheveningen), a part of The Hague in The Netherlands, it would appear that whoever thought it was a scene from Holt Norfolk showing the Gresham School was completely WRONG!!!! :) There was even an old newspaper clipping about the school taped to the back of the frame!!!!

I did think that the first word - Straatje - was Street.

Looking at the listings for his work on this site, it doesn't seem as if his etchings sell for any great sums though. Luckily I paid very little for it.
