The 2nd watercolor came from UK and the signature looks to be of an English artist. Also a watercolor on paper, it measures approx 14 x 10 inches, signed bottom left corner. The seller suggested this was UK artist travelling to Europe, painting the landscapes as you can see the St. Peters Basilica (Vatican) church depicted in the background. Perhaps this little hint can help you to identify the artist? This could be a major name to be revealed but I do not get my hopes up just yet ....


Thank you.
Cyril.

Not a major name, but a highly accomplished artist:

Margaret Raymond Wansey 1871-1940.

Artprice does mention her, but has no auction results. She may have been too posh to sell, as some upper class ladies were. Such works change owner only by descent.
