Fine Art/"G Wiegand" Watercolors?

I have two watercolors of landscapes from the late 1800s, found in my grandparent's attic, both signed "G Wiegand." Though 1892 would have been early in his career, and he seems to have worked primarily in oil, do you think that these could have been painted by Gustav Wiegand?
Thanks so much

I'm just back from Maine, and a wonderful visit to the Colby Museum of Art in Waterville.  I urge you to visit.  America's finest artists are displayed.  It is amazing.  

As for your pictures, anything is possible.  But I do not think these are done by Gustave Wiegand. I have never seen his signature executed in anything but blocky CAP letters.  It is extremely rare to find a watercolor by this artist, and rare also to find any livestock (sometimes sheep) in his pictures.  Finally, even if this were to be an early watercolor study by Wiegand, it would not bring very much in a sale.

But hang on to it, or gift it to someone who might enjoy it!
