An original watercolor painting
believed to be C.G. Lane 1881

An original watercolor painting
"Lake of Constance"
Photo not actual size. The above photo appears darker than original as watercolors are difficult to photograph.
 This is a Turner like water color of a lake view expertly executed work with great delicacy
There is a very feint signature that seems to say " C.G. Lane" and date "81" on the lower right hand corner. It was only visible in enhanced photographs
     C.G. Lane was a well known and accomplished watercolorist as well as quite a famous cricketer!  
    The label on the back of the frame it came with said (copy) "of a painting by JMW Turner of the Lake of Constance, C G Lane...Gaddesden." This inscription may have been done at a later date, as the painting
appears very similar to a work by Ruskin in a private collection.
        It was painted on a thin smooth wove texture paper while mounted on a board. Paint exceeds edges of paper to the board. Board has been removed for preservation of painting . Painting is 9 1/4 by 12 3/4 inches.
