Scope and content

Watercolour study of a house beside a stream, in a country setting. It is the source for the sketch 1990-207-37 which is attributed to Lady Falkland, one of a group of similar pairs in the album. There are some variations between the two; in this work the washes are subtler, the touch is more delicate, and there is a more detailed pencil drawing underneath.
This work belongs to a group of unsigned watercolours over pencil on grey tinted paper, including 1990-207-24, -28, -29, -37, -44, -47, -48, -53, and -100. The subject matter is usually a European landscape.
They might be from the same trip. Several are attributed to Lady Falkland, and others of similar composition are probably executed by a second artist. This suggests a working relationship with another artist, either professional or amateur (social).
