A fine early 20th century watercolour painting by the artist William Henry Sweet. The scene depicts a small village with a fisherman returning home. Artist's name and dates inscribed on the mount, however, the birth date seems to have been wrongly inscribed. Listings by William Henry Sweet often appear as Walter Henry Sweet.
