MANUSCRIPT ALBUM OF ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS 1862
Unpublished watercolours1862
BOYLE, Rosalie. 1862-1870 Original artwork comprising of 32 original Watercolours, with a further 40 pencil drawings heightened in white, plus 5 small original lithographs. Signed in pencil “Rosalie Boyle 1862” to front free endpaper. The works illustrate Victorian social life together with some European scenes which might well have been drawn from life. Several paintings show women at work, sewing, cooking etc One of the lithographs shows the address “The Rookery, George Lane, Parish of Woodford” [London] but although there is a considerable amount of research to be found online about the Rookery, we have been unable to pin down when the Boyle family lived there. [The Rookery estate, originally occupied the whole of the left-hand side of George Lane from the High Road to Chigwell Road. George Lane is an ancient track, perhaps the first access road to connect the important turnpike roads on the High Road and the Lower Road (now Chigwell Road)]. The majority of the pictures are captioned, sometimes with humour, with scenes in North Wales around Lynn Idwal, Snowdon, on the South Coast at Hastings and Brighton beaches and at Woodford, Hoddesdon,etc. There are seventy seven images in total, the majority of the drawings are mounted one to a page, on rectos.The works are bound into in a half leather bound album measuring 11 inches by 8.5 inches approx which has been re-backed with new corners and pastedowns but retaining the original boards, covers, and all the art works.Internally there is some foxing and browning , with toning to the album leaves and some minor edge tears and creasing to a number of page edges. A charming and evocative album.
