S Clapham (active 1940 – 1960)
49 x 70 cm
A beautifully-coloured watercolour of Puslinch House, a fine Christopher Wren-style Georgian mansion in Devon. The estate was owned by the Poslylinch, Mohun, and Upton families before being taken over by the Yonge family in 1718, following the marriage of John Yonge and Mary Upton. The Queen Anne House mansion was built on the occasion of their wedding and an earlier mediaeval house still exists in the grounds as a country cottage. During the war, the house was used as a voluntary hospital for wounded officers.
Clapham was an architect based in Stockwell in London.
Condition: generally very good; a little faint spotting to top right corner.
