Arthur Quartley Robert S Burton
Several years ago, I found a small, very well-executed watercolor signed by Quartley in a box of old frames at a tag sale in Mt Vernon, NY.
The picture shows a Dutch polder landscape with fields & windmills. It is labelled "Zandamm" and is dated "July 2, (18)82. The recent exhibition catalogue on the Tile Club talks about Quartley's summer painting trips with club members to Eastern Long Island, but there does not seem to be any mention of his travelling to Europe. I am therefore left wondering whether he did the watercolor on location or used copies from some other image.
