Condition/Notes : The watercolour on paper study of Old Manor Kenilworth is in good condition with vibrant colours and no damage or moisture. The painting depicts the famous listed building which can be seen today although now surrounded by a wall. This painting is prior to the official English Heritage listing registered 1st June 1949. The painting is titled in the artist's handscript Old Manor Kenilworth, dated Sept. 1942 and signed what appears to be C Milner underlined. Somewhat confusingly, the artist is listed verso as Arthur William Chesher 1895-1972 perhaps indicating that the signature is an alias or nick-name. Further research will be required regarding this possibility. The painting is displayed within a cream coloured textured mount which is also in good condition. The gilt wooden frame is in good condition with light scuffing and general light wear to edges but the glazing has a 140mm crack along the top lh horizontal edge which has been secured with cellotape. The frame has a card backing-board secured by arrow points and sealed with 50mm self-adhesive framing tape. The artist's name is written in handscript "Artist : Arthur William Chesher 1895-1972". to the upper edge of the backing board. Hanging cord is attached.
