Hornby, Anna - BUIANO, POPPI


Born Gloucestershire. Studied there also Florence and London (under F E Jackson). Widely exhibited inc. 13 at R A. The watercolours offered here are taken from a sketch book. The book is signed and dated 1939. It is rare for a sketch book like this to come to the market place; this is a beauty. A pen & ink with cross-hatching of a farmhouse and orchard. The notes tell us it is the village of BUIANO, POPPI, in TUSCANY. It is dated May 1965. Measures 165 x 240mm. Sublime!
