this is one of the shining stars of my collection, it has been for few years now but still I never tried to establish the authorship of it ...... My apologies for the dark images, they were taken last evening with not much light around ....

It is watercolor with gum Arabic painting depicting 3 nude ladies and a child, very peaceful and almost angelic-like image. It is painted on old Whatman drawing board (sorry I did not take the pic of the verso but can do later if needed).

I feel this could be a sketch or preparatory work for a large painting. The matting and frame were my own small project so they would not hold any additional clues for you .... The art sight is about 12 x 16 inches approx. Signed in the bottom left corner. The signature appears to read J A Fitzgerald but I am just not 100 % sure and would love to get a help from the forum. I have seen Fitzgerald's signature but it had A written in a loopy way and not a Capital one like mine has (or is it a B??) ..... Z and G seems to be overlapping each other (just like mine has) ..... but I do not see T letter in the signature ....

I am prepared to be told that this could be done by a complete different artist and that is what I am looking for here: re-assurance, one way or another .....

Thank you in advance,

Hello Cyril, I might be wrong, but I am inclined to believe that your painting might be from J Anster Fitzggerald.

A Painting I am putting here by him, if you take a look at the signature, it is very close to the signature of your painting.

Besides, I noticed too that painters do not always sign in the same manner.


I find your painting very good.

Hello Teresa,

Thank you for your comments and the images shared. The signature on your image does look very close to what I have on my painting so it gives me assurance this is by John Fitzgerald indeed ..

Thanks again,
