After inheriting this painting, a lady from Chesterfield decided to do a little research. She saw the handwritten title and signature by George Cunningham on the back of the frame which led her to Joescarborough.co.uk, which is custodian of George’s archive. In that archive she found the actual two page preparatory sketch for her painting. It is truly a privilege to have the two reunited after all these years. After some persuasion the lady has allowed us to offer the painting and sketch for sale together for the princely sum of £1000. If I lived in HOLMESFIELD I would buy it myself.
