Condition/Notes : The watercolour painting of Bakewell viewed from the River Wye in 1882 is in quite good condition with slight fading to colour intensity and light foxing to the sky in a few places. The scene is quite spectacular and can be compared to photographs taken between 1890 and 1900 in which the landmarks can be easily compared with images of Bakewell on your search engine images.
In common with other works by this artist, the characteristic herd of cows is visible with one cow looking towards the artist. The pen and ink depiction of the buildings in the town is very detailed. The study is signed W.H. Pigott on the lower edge of the painting and dated 1882. See the images below. The painting is displayed within a period gilt mount, which is in good condition, housed within a plain gilt frame which is in fair condition with scuffing and chips to edges. The backing board is secured with old rusty panel pins and covered with old brown paper dust sheet which is torn in places. No visible script. Overall, the painting is a good example of the work of this artist and an historical record of Bakewell. The painting will benefit from reframing.
