Artist's description:

An original painting of the 18th-century Water Garden at Studley Royal, near Ripon, with the Temple of Piety in the distance surrounded by yew trees, pines and beeches and a statue of Bacchus in the foreground. The Temple of Piety - originally designed and built in about 1729 - was thought to be a dedication to Hercules. The Temple was intended to be a cool summer house in a shady part of the Water Garden overlooking the Moon Pond. Adjacent to the Studley Royal estate are the ruins of Fountains Abbey. These ruins were bought by William Aislabie, owner of Studley Royal, in 1742 to extend his grounds and they were incorporated into the design of the Water Gardens. The whole site is now in the care of the National Trust.

Painted in mixed media (pen, ink wash and oil pastel) on quality Bockingford 300gsm acid-free paper. The painting is supplied un-mounted and un-framed and will be sent in a postal tube. FREE POSTAGE TO UK BUYERS.
