Fine Art/Framed Watercolour
I have a watercolour called Hoar Frost on Marton Mere dated 1903 by J C Morley. I know he lived in Blackpool England for some time and they have a couple of his oil paintings in the Grundy Gallery in Blackpool. I have been told, but I do not know if this is true, that he moved to Liverpool, England and then in 1915 moved to USA but I do not know where in USA. Could you verify any of this for me, perhaps add a little more background, and possibly let me know if there is any value in this painting. Also any other information you could possibly come up with. Thanks. Marianne.
Dear Marianne, I find no listing for a "J.C.Morley" in any dictionary of British artists nor in any dictionary of American artists. I find only one auction record for a 20 x 30 inch painting at $995. He is identified as 20th century British, painter of rivers and cattle.
