Brief Description
Watercolour, framed, artist's inscription and titled "In the Committee Room at Lord's". Shows view looking across room out to pitch during a match at the Marylebone Cricket Club. Created by artist Karen Neale, appointed Marylebone Cricket Club Young Cricket Artist for 2005. Presented to the Melbourne Cricket Club on the occasion of the 2006-07 Test Series. Artist's handwritten inscription encircling the artwork states: "Friday 22nd July 2005 I'm back in the Pavilion today, after yesterday's exciting play and unlike yesterday when I was down at pitchside, today I am slightly removed from the action, sitting quietly in the corner of the Committee Room allowing the various committee members to enjoy (or rather commiserate as England decides to fall for 155 and let Australia back in to bat again) the play through the fabulous large picture windows, very civilized with Tim serving tea and biscuits and then a little later Pimms and champagne to fortify against Australia." Title (lower left, pencil) 'In the Committee Room at Lord's'. Signed and dated (lower right, pencil) Karen Neale 2005
