Can you please read me this inscription on board of this painting?
There is also the plate with the name : F.W.Watts but I think this is not from this painting.
The painting is unsigned.

Your pictures are a little dark, but so are Frederick Waters Watts' paintings.

If what I see is correct, it is the style, and seems to be the quality of Watts.
The other writing might have been an owner of the painting. It looks to be original - tough, without better photos.

His landscapes are all very dark. He was a follower of a famous landscape artist.

He is listed on most art sites.

Hope this helps.

saintluc-gold member -1857 posts- Feb.2007- France.

The first inscription is for the painter Francis Henry Huntington 1824_1895. But the following"Oak Ridge, Totteridge, Hertts [for Hertfordshire]" is the postal adress of his son, around 1860/1861, and the postal adress that was inscribed for the painter in the catalog of the 1860 exhibition of the Royal Society of Arts. So, I guess that he was only the owner of this painting.
The second inscription could be for the author of the painting, since the name is not followed by a postal adress but by "View of Totteridge Common 1860". I finally decipered this name as Janet S. Scrimgeour. We can find a lot of Janet Scrimgeour at the time. No known artist painter but an only Janet S. Scrimgeour who lived and died in Totteridge : Janet Sheddel Scrimgeour 1833-1883 who could have been a gifted amateur.
Totteridge was in Hertfordshire but since 1965 in the borough of Barnet, London.
