21.5 x 11.5 cm

Signed, dated and studio stamp verso.

St Giles Church in Bradford on Tone lies nestled between the Blackdown and Quantock Hills and dates back from the 13th century. One of the lords of the manor, Sir John de Merit (d.1391), founded a chantry chapel here in 1387 but the church has undergone a series of renovations since. The present south aisle and most of the windows date to the 15th century, and the west tower to the early 16th century, before the church underwent full restoration works in 1867.

Provenance: the artist’s studio sale.

Condition: very good.
