A New England native, Watson graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and later in life co-founded the Berkshire Summer School of Art.

Painting

Travelers on a Country Road

This is a very fine original 19th Century painting in the style of Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek (1807-1868). Oil on panel, 7 1/4 x 8 7/8 inches, c. 1850, unsigned, in an ornate period gilt frame. Although this painting is unsigned, the style and subject are very reminiscent of the work of Dutch artist Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek, who was known for his delicately painted atmospheric landscapes.
