Lot Essay


This captivating summer scene was painted at Bossinney Court near Tintagel in Cornwall, around 1920-1, when the house was let to the artist Algernon Talmage, seated on the right of the picture. A copy of a letter to Major Boswell from Dugdale attached to the reverse of the painting lists the other sitters as: Robin Feild (standing); the artist's wife, A.K. Browning, herself an artist (in the centre); and Edith Leppard, Talmage's then Housekeeper/Secretary (on the left, holding the teapot).
