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.
