About

A very finely painted mid 19th century English watercolour depicting figures before a stately home, excellently presented in a washline mount and modern gilt frame. We have attributed this watercolour to John Chessell Buckler through comparisons with other listed watercolours by the artist. The architectural subject and handling of the paint suggests that the present painting is by Buckler. Provenance: Beaulieu Fine Arts, Hampshire (old label verso). Unsigned. On wove. Artist Biography: John Chessel Buckler learnt his draughtsmanship skills by assisting his architect father in creating topographical drawings, including many of Oxfordshire churches and other buildings. These drawings in pencil or pen and wash are prized holdings in the Bodleian and the British Library and act as an important record of now demolished buildings. While continuing to produce topographical drawings (e.g. Sixty Views of Endowed Grammar Schools, 1827), Buckler began to practise as an architect in the 1820s, designing Costessey Hall, Norfolk (now demolished) and other neo-Tudor houses. He received the second prize for his design for the new Houses of Parliament in 1834 after the fire. He carried out restoration work at Lincoln Cathedral and at several Oxfordshire churches, including Adderbury (1831–4), Pyrton (1856), and Iffley, where he was responsible for the reinstatement of the blocked twelfth-century west window in 1856. He designed Magdalen College Schoolroom, now the College Library (1849–51), the Turl Street front of Jesus College (1854) and carried out restorations at Oriel, Brasenose and the University Church. He succeeded H. J. Underwood as architect at the Oxford Castle Prison and Littlemore Hospital in the 1850s. Image Size: 14 x 18cm (5.5" x 7.1") Framed Size: 33.5 x 36.7cm (13.2" x 14.4")
