The Friends have recently bought this watercolour for the museum
collection. It shows The Oaks mansion house which formerly stood in Oaks
Park. At one time the house belonged to the Earl of Derby and it gave its
name to the famous horse race run at Epsom each year. The painting is
dated 1840 and has the artists initials - possibly LLH - although they
are faint and hard to read.
A note on the back shows that the picture belonged to a descendent of
Sir Charles Edward Grey, once Chief Justice of Calcutta, who bought the
house from the Earl of Derby in 1834. The picture will be on display in
Honeywood as soon as it has been re-framed.
12" x 8" (very near actual size) borderless, glossy prints of this
picture may be obtained from the Honeywood shop, and are ideal for
framing behind glass.
£6.99 each, plus £1.50 if you wish the print to be posted to you in the
UK - please
email for overseas postal costs.
