Edward Martindale Richardson (1810-1874)
A Castle in Yorkshire

Medium: Watercolour
Size without frame: 9.0" x 13.0"
SOLD

Monogrammed and dated 1848 and in a beautiful and delicate original frame and with the original backings as follows. This picture was given to me by Winifred M Sanders of Bideford the widow of George Sanders 1861-1936. Alfred Joseph sanders was his brother. A label: Lent by AJ Saders Esq 15 Lyddon street Leeds-No 5 edward Richardson-Water colour Castle in Yorkshire Signed valid. A further label 1906 THE LAING ART GALLERY NEWCASTLE countersigned by Sanders A faded label of the Laing exhibition of paintings by Ed Richardson being the frontispiece of a catalogue of a special loan collection of various members of the Richardson family. UPDATE! We think the following now applicable. Barden Tower is a fine ruined hunting lodge on the edge of the road leading up Lower Wharfedale between Bolton Abbey and Burnsall in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Nearby attractions include Barden Bridge (where a road forks over the River Wharfe to Appletreewick) and the treacherous channel of river known as "The Strid" (actually part of the Bolton Abbey estate). [N.B. Barden lends its name to the so called "Barden Triangle" an area of supposed supernatural activity which includes the magical Elbolton Hill near Thorpe and the nightmarish ravine that is Trollers-Gill near Appletreewick.] Above Barden, and to the west is Barden Moor. How much provenance can one give!
