Description

Watercolour and chalk on paper.

Sir William Rothenstein was a painter, printmaker, draughtsman, lecturer, and writer on art. He was Principal at the Royal College of Art from 1920 to 1935 and was knighted in 1931 for his services to art. The Rothensteins bought a farm in Gloucestershire in 1912 and made many pictures of the farm and neighbouring villages: He was very interested in the colours of the stone:”

“Stone buildings always move me – austere in grey weather, pale, livid even, against a stormy sky, they are warm and sparkling in the sunlight”. (Rothenstein, II, p.274.). This was drawn at the same time as the oil in the Tate of the same title.
