Question
Mr. Laskowski,
I have done some research and can't find anything on my watercolor art. The artist's name is Louis Bretou and the title of the art is "Villiers Milloriu". I believe it was set in the late 1800's to early 1900's.  The next one is a Maritime of a ship on the ocean signed "Ferguson".  Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.  Melissa Finan
