Landscape with a herdsman driving cattle through a ruined arch watercolour 12.5 x 16cm

Footnote: Provenance: The Rev Canon W R Beach and thence by descent The Reverend W R Beach, a missionary in China in the 1850s and a Canon of St John's Cathedral in Hong Kong, was a friend of Dr Thomas Boswell Watson (1815-1860). Watson was a keen amateur painter who was George Chinnery's physician in Macau between 1845-1852 and was often paid for his services with Chinnery's pictures. The Reverend Mr Beach married Dr Watson's daughter, Sophia J Watson, and hence a number of Chinnery's works have been passed into the current collection.

Condition report: Discoloured, with a narrow lighter strip showing the original colours along the top edge. Examined out of frame.
