I was hoping to get some answers on yet another antique watercolor I have come into possession.

Antique watercolor on paper, matted, art sight is approx 12 x 8 inches when overall size comes to 17 x 13 inches. Signed to the bottom right corner and dated. As for the date it is obviously stating August 1919 but as for the signature ... this is where the puzzle begins.

Somehow the scene seems to be familiar to me ... Could that be a 1919 copy of an older painting ...? or maybe a sketch that had become a part of a famous painting at a latter date ....??? Appears to be of French or Belgian origin, do not you say ....?

Thank you kindly for any insight provided,

The scene looks familiar as art hunters often come across Belgian color etchings of these Flemish "beguinages", sometimes with these white-capped semi-nuns called "begijntjes".

But I am convinced this watercolor has an English signature by the name of D.Cheadle. There have been times when the British artists frequented Belgium. A Henry Cheadle is listed, I cannot find a D. but that would be the name to look for.

Hello Arb!

thank you very much for your response! I almost gave up on getting any info towards this w/c as it has been quite a while since I have posted it and I am very thankful for your input. You probably are right about this being British artist ...I acquired it from UK art dealer so there is a good chance ...

once again, thank you kindly for your response.
