Familiar London - painted by Rose Barton

£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This charming volume takes the reader on a historical tour of London and its landmarks, familiar and (in some cases) less familiar, illustrated with reproductions of the author's own paintings, many of them kindly loaned to her by their owners for the purpose.

Rose Mary Barton RWS (1856–1929) was an Anglo-Irish watercolourist who painted landscape, street scenes, gardens, child portraits and illustrations of the townscape of Britain and Ireland. Barton exhibited with the Watercolour Society of Ireland (WCSI), the Royal Academy (RA), the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA), the Society of Women Artists and the Royal Watercolour Society (RWS), and became a full member of the RWS in 1911. Her paintings are in public collections of Irish painting in both Ireland and Britain, including the National Gallery of Ireland and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane in Dublin, and the Ulster Museum in Belfast.

Our copy is in good condition, bound in magenta cloth decorated on the front cover with a motif of red roses & green leaves enclosed within a dark yellow stylised leaf border, the title etc in gilt lettering in a panel at the top. A similar arrangement of letters and design adorns the spine. Externally there are only minor signs of wear - bumped corners (minor damage at the bottom), and some shelf wear to top & bottom of the spine. Inside, the binding is firm, and all pages are clean and bright. The half-title page is very lightly browned. An ink-written name adorns the top of the title page (which has a curious pure-white stripe lengthways down it). There is no foxing. The many illustrations are all protected with flimsy sheets bearing a description of each (the frontispiece showing 'Prince George of Wales watching the Scots Guards from Marlborough House'. A very nice book.
