This is an interesting original watercolor painting of a monument and reflecting pool. This watercolor came to us unidentified as to the artist but it is a very competent hand that created this work. on the back of the illustration board is a New York art dealer, N.E. Montross. The painting measures 11 1/2X19 1/2 inches, no apparent signature. About Montross:
"The Montross Gallery is named after its founder and first director, Newman Emerson Montross (1849−1932). The gallery, which opened in 1878, represented leading American artists of the time, including Thomas Dewing, Abbott Thayer, Dwight William Tryon, Horatio Walker, and Alexander Wyant, and sold work to collectors such as Thomas B. Clark, Charles Lang Freer, George Hearn, and John Johnson. This commitment to the American art movement deepened in the 1900s, when the gallery hosted the annual exhibitions of the Ten. "
