Quintessentially English

One for the diary!
'Quintessentially English'
30 June-17 July 

By Rebecca Campbell
A series of oil paintings on linen.
The artist 'invites us into the drawing room of the English Eccentric, 
displaying a love of exotic fauna, imported decadence and wild animals. 
These paintings in particular have been influenced by Indian Mogul miniatures.'

  5. Fascinating exhibit...The first reminds me of the imported-from England antique wallpaper in the Lee Drawing Room of the Blair House (the President's guest house) here in Washington, DC - almost identical!!! Thanks, Jeanne, for sharing with us this wonderful exhibit! Cassandra ♥

  6. i love your site because i love everything english... the people, the countryside, the villages, and london!
    i found you again thru kim at golden pines.
    now i know why i lost you before. i'd forgotten the name of your blog. i right click and save to favorites (which i had tried to do with yours) but a warning comes up that says it's copywrited or something...) i don't want to steal anything! i simply want to be able to click on it from my favorites bar!
    guess i'll write it on a paper and keep by my computer. maybe my old memory will kick in.
    breathtaking site... irritating little message for new visitors!
    felt a little insulted. but i guess you have to protect your pictures? anyway, thanks.
