I recently purchased this large drawing for a calendar. I think that this is early 1900's. Pencil, charcoal and pastels on paper. Unfortunately not signed, but very very well done. Does anyone have any idea who the artist may be? Or could anyone give me any leads on researching the piece? Thanks![img]1900s Calendar Art, Any help in identifying the artist?

the Dutch would spell it kalender so that's my first theory out of the window,I love the scene though and found it intriguing.

possibly done by a homesick Dutch immigrant?

It has a look of Charles Robinson about it, brother of William Heath Robinson. Its definately of his period though.
