Each original painting is in oil on board and measures 5” x 8”. As well as documenting the stones themselves, they sometimes include delightful details of flora and fauna in addition to the surrounding landscape settings, often in dramatic conditions of weather and light. Whilst forming a charming and attractive collection of images, the paintings also constitute an important pictorial document of a significant site type for which the NMRW has few visual records. The artist’s eye has also captured detail and context which photographic recording would fail to pick up.
As the originals are due for exhibition and sale at Picton Castle from 5th August, 2011, Mrs Young has kindly allowed the National Monuments Record to digitally copy the paintings for their public archive. It is hoped that the paintings are sold as an entire collection, as it is highly desirable to maintain the integrity of such a body of work. However, should the collection be broken up the NMRW is pleased to preserve at least a virtual complete set of the paintings and make them accessible to the public.
