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.
