Grimshaw painted this view several times, on different surfaces and in different seasons. The composition, with the gentle bend in the wall, and the open field to the left, seemed particularly satisfying to him.
No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 15% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.
Please note that the medium should read 'oil on card' and not 'oil on panel'. The original backboard is inscribed with the artist's signature and title.
