nuneham courtenay lock cottages
by robert harris
- Artist Notes
- The Lock Cottages were in the grounds of Nuneham Courtney House, Oxfordshire and were designed along with the rustic bridge as a 'romantic eyecatcher' by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown.
It was quite a tourist attraction when boating on the river Thames in Victorian times, but sadly the cottages and bridge have long since been demolished and the site now is unrecognisable.
Definitely a paradise lost.
The size of the painting is 90 x 90 x 3 cm. and is on stretched canvas.

- Artist Biography
Robert Maxwell Harris was born at Southampton, England in 1952.
I have been painting as a hobby since 1982 in oil and acrylic.
My main influence when I started was Pre-Raphaelite art which had a lot of attention to detail.
Much of my inspiration to paint comes the landscape of the Ridgeway area ...
