Title: The Scout
I am enclosing a photo
of the watercolor, which I believe,
might have been painted by Lawrence C.
Earle. On the back of the frame there is
the name Lawrence C. Earle. This
painting was given to my uncle, Harry L.
Lawson, by a school-mate in Montclair,
NJ. My uncle was born in 1888 and lived
in Montclair until about 1910. I am not
sure if his friend might have been a son
of Lawrence C. Earle. I do know that
both the painting and frame are original
and do not believe the painting has been
removed from the frame.
During the 1940's, I
spent 4 years on my uncle's farm in
Readington, NJ and I always liked the
painting. When my uncle died in 1981, I
was given this painting by his sister.
I am interested if
anyone has any information of this
painting and also if Lawrence Earle used
watercolor in many of his paintings. Any
information would be appreciated.
