Spanish Fountain 
(Fitzwilliam Museum)


I'm a bit confused about this painting. I found another image from Jim's Fine Art called Spanish Fountain (same image as this and they had it listed at the Brooklyn Museum:

    Spanish Fountain
    Brooklyn Museum, New York
    34.4 x 48.6 cm  (13 9/16 x 19 1/8 in.)
Both images are of the same painting. This painting at the Met I KNOW is correct because I know where this image came from. 

Sargent did a number of paintings of Spanish fountains. There may in fact be another watercolor at the Brooklyn Museum. I just don't know.
