Belgian artist Theophile Nicolet...first of all, love the first name...can you see that coming back into vogue for children's name. His works are sold at many of the world auction houses. He lived in both Belgium and America. This work of fantastic watercolor is dated 1917 and it is one of the most lovely works I have ever found. The colors are mesmerizing and the work mimics the artists of the Barbizon era.
