Addendum: Congratulations to Connor de Jong of the Water Street Atelier. You've got it. It’s John Singer Sargent (American, 1856–1925) from his "Splendid Mountain Watercolours" Sketchbook, 1870. Sheets: 11 x 16 in.
Link to the Met website, where, thanks to an intuitive image interface, you can scroll through the image and see amazing closeups of all his works in the collection.
Charley Parker of the blog Lines and Colors calls it: "likely the best major art museum website in the world."
